Loire Wines with Benoit Roumet

This show was published 15 June 2012

Overview

Benoit Roumet is a director of the BIVC, the regional trade body for the wines from the Central Loire Valley, a region that stretches 400km from Nante, by the Atlantic coast, to Pouilly-Fume, 200km to the south of Paris. We talk about the different grape varieties such as Muscadet, Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc, and regions including Anjou-Saumur, Touraine and Vouvray. The main appellations in the Loire for sparkling wines are Cremant de Loire, Saumur, Touraine, Anjou and Vouvray, where all the wines are 100% Chenin Blanc but are made in a variety of styles, from dry to sweet to fizzzy.
