Loire Wines with Benoit Roumet
This show was published 15 June 2012
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.
The UK Wine Show is sponsored by ThirtyFifty. Our team of wine tasters are busy entertaining and educating UK consumers to help them get the most out of wine.
The music used for the UK Wine Show is Griffes de Jingle 1 by Marcel de la Jartèle and Silence by Etoile Noire.
