Jérémie Mourat - Fiefs Vendéens - Le Tasting Room | Discovering Loire wines | Scoop.it
Jérémie Mourat - dynamic producer in the Fiefs Vendéens. Stylish wines, great tasting room and a totally different feel for the Loire valley.
Cathy Henton's insight:

Stylish wines from the Fiefs Vendéens appellation.  A wide range of grape varieties and styles is found here and there is a distinctly southern feel.  Not to be missed if you are near the coast.

Good to see the Loire getting a mention although would be nice to see some suggestions from a bit further West from time to time.  What about the great Chenin's from Anjou  and Savennières?

It's a fabulous restaurant right in the heart of the vines.  Well worth a visit if you're in the Coteaux du Layon.
