Re: What would your classification of Loire reds be?

Personally I think Baudry is the best overall producer in Loire. When you consider the range of their production and offerings, from whites, to reds, to rose, they shine. And their top cuvees are best of class. While I personally like Marc Plouzeau’s Franc de Pied as much or more than Baudry’s best...

Re: How much wine did you consume in 2019?

179 bottles -- a down year for us. BUT! More than I purchased (175), which is a first, and a good sign for my ability to maintain cellar size and not grow anymore.
