The longest river in France, the last wild river in Europe: the Loire contains multitudes. Its center, between Saumur and Amboise, is dedicated principally to two great varieties: Chenin, and Cabernet Franc.The heart of the Loire yields some of its most powerful, textured, and complex wines, wines that gesture towards Bordeaux and white Burgundy while remaining uniquely themselves, and bargains to boot.From Montlouis to Saumur-Champigny, from Puy-Notre-Dame to Chinon, we’ll take a detailed look at the sites and producers that make this slice of the river special, and continue exploring my favorite region of France.
