The other day while picking up a few bottles at La Cave de L'Insolite, Michel (the owner) introduced me to two Loire valley winemakers who were there promoting their wines. Unfortunately I was in a hurry and couldn't taste with them. But I wanted to plug their domaines anyway, because it feels worth mentioning that these were some really nice nonjudgmental guys. How do I know this? I came straight from work and was wearing sarouels, which from certain angles look somewhat skirt-like, and which I usually don't wear to wine events, or around winemakers, who are essentially farmers, since I'm aware that doing so transmits an image of pure girly-man foppery. But no one batted an eyelash. We chatted about the harvest in Anjou.

Domaine de l'R
Domaine du Clos de l'Elu
(Again, no idea if the wines are any good. I can vouch for their nonchalance in the face of high fashion though.)
