(Josh and Jeff spent a few days in the Loire Valley checking out wine this September. This is the first of a series of posts telling the story.)
The drive from Charles de Gualle to Sancerre was a breeze and we arrived in time for lunch on a beautiful warm and sunny day. We picked up our friend Andrew and drove the 4kms to Chavignol (of Crottin de Chavignol fame) for a fine bistro lunch (veal brain, andouillette, duck and all with lots of goat cheese and Sancerre, of course). Well fed, we headed over to Domaine Vacheron. We met with Jean-Laurent, one of four male Vacherons (two brothers and their sons) who currently run the domaine.
