Tomorrow promises to be an exciting day! First of all, after a gruelling day at work, I will attend a small Musar tasting including the 66 and 77 + a few younger vintages. Then I'll attend a large tasting of Sassicaia, which is a wine made in a style I am afraid of - hence the antidote taken beforehand
Tonight I had dinner with an Archaeologist/Byzantologist friend of mine. She likes Loire castles; I like Loire wines; she doesn't at all mind drinking Loire wines; I don't mind at all looking at such modern archaeological sites as Medieval castles! So we thought that later on this summer we'd go off to the Loire and cycle (? if possible) around a bit doing a bit of rocky stuff - both looking at piles of them in different states of archaeological interest and drinking them. Can anyone give practical advice on whether a trip like this can be done on bicycle? Also cheap accomodation tips (really, really cheap as we're both poor students who prefer to spend their little monies on smart stuff like Archaeology and Wine!) would be really welcome. Also any must see Medieval Castles and must see Wineries apart from the obvious will be welcome!
While discussing this lovely trip, we of course drank a favourite wine of our's: Chateau Musar Rouge 1997
Tastes like Musar. Yum.
I don't drink wine because of religious reasons ... only for other reasons.
