Chinon Three years ago, I visited the Rive Gauche organic wine estate in Chinon - at that time, I reported about the trip in the magazine and in the forum of Wein-Plus - and I dealt with the Loire wines in more detail. The reproach at that time from committed wine friends: I had not visited the top of the Loire vintners, but had picked out one or the other winery almost arbitrarily. This may be true, but my concern is actually always to gain as broad an experience as possible in the different wine regions and to get to know not only the wines, but also the cultural heritage and traditions. At that time, I took this bottle with me, bought -down- in the mountain cave where the imposing ruin of Chinon Castle stands, where once Joan of Arc convinced the king to come to Orléans' military aid.
