Project Loire – reds and pinks

Loire Chinon Stevens Fremont from Victoria Kukla InterLoire

Tokaj might be famous for the being the wine of kings, but when it comes to the wine of queens, it's the Loire that holds a little-known secret. See this guide to our ongoing coverage Loire wines.

When it comes to red grape varieties in the Loire, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Gamay and Malbec (Côt, in Loire-speak) come to mind. Even a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon is to be expected. But Berligou? I hadn't even heard of Berligou! This was, it must be noted, just a few weeks before, by complete coincidence, Berligou popped up on the forum.
