The area under vine stretches inland firstly from the coast, where ultra clean and incisive Muscadet is made from the white grape Melon Blanc. The journey inland continues through Touraine, Anjou and Saumur where a galaxy of styles from Chenin Blanc, Gamay and Cabernet Franc is made, at well as gthe Champenois method Sparkling, Cremant de Loire. The region finishes on the kimmeridgian laden soils of Sancerre, the spiritual home of Sauvignon Blanc (interestingly only a stone's throw from Burgundy's satellite region of Chablis).  

Saumur Chenin Blanc Elegance is a textured Chenin, while Athletes du Vin Chenin is racier with a thunderbolt of acid. Nicholas Idiart Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc has challenged my whole belief system (ie. I hate it) about the variety, it is a stylish, Sancerre-style expression. Pressoir Notre Dame Cabernet Franc has plenty of punch, while Athletes du Vin Gamay is all about elegance. Lastly Saumur Brut Fine Bulles. Crement de Loire Sparkling is criminally underrated, I'd prefer to drink this than Veuve or Moet any day. Classy Champagne method Sparkling. STSWine
