I enjoyed your Around France in Wine feature in the November edition.
However, I took exception to one phrase referring to “a few pale reds” to describe the Cabernet franc wines of Chinon, Saumur-Champigny and so on. Worth more than that, surely? And the sweet wines of the Layon Valley south of Angers are world-class – indeed the qualities of chenin blanc are almost unique, not only for Bonnezeaux but also for the dry Savennières for example.
