Last night we attended the annual concert which heralds the opening of the Maison des Sancerre our local wine museum. We listened to some amazing music including an orchestra made-up of 10 hurdy-gurdies, 4 sets of French bagpipes, accordeon, guitar and drums! At the conclusion guests nibbled local Cottin de Chavignol goats cheese the perennial accompaniment to good Sancerre wine. Afterwards we went to a local restaurant with a number of winemakers who all brought their own drinks with them! Jovially we compared whites and reds of 2010. Yes another good year...but different!
