A Very Fine Vintage in the Loire Valley

Many of our clients are much the same age as we are and are delighted to hear that 1959 was an exceptional vintage in the Loire Valley. For real wine lovers such as the client in this photo we try to make sure we visit a winery that can offer you some of this special vintage. You won't get to taste it, as the winemaker cannot afford to open a bottle for that, but you can still buy it, for a surprisingly reasonable price. The wine in this photo is about €300 a bottle, and for anyone who wants to celebrate a special anniversary, it makes a great gift (to yourself, or a loved one!).
