Route des vignobles

Today we visited the vineyards along part of the Route des Vignobles, driving from L'Ile Bouchard, through Panzoult to Chinon.

 En route we stopped at a couple of the smaller Domaines for a 'degustation'.

The most interesting and friendly was the Domaine des Rouet where we spent a good hour tasting and making our purchases from Madame Rouet.

Madame was quiet a character, as the posters on the walls showed.

Our favourite and choice for the wine cellar was this rose.

The Domaine is organic and so, Madame told us, you can drink yourself "sous la table" and not have a headache... Well, we'll see!!!
