Oh... I just can't wait. A new translation just came in... it's another Winemaker Detective novel by Jean-Pierre and Noël, set in Vouvray! This means we are heading back to the Loire Valley, not so very far from Tours, where chinon blanc is a dominant grape variety. I look forward to seeing what Sally and Amy have done with the translation and getting to work on this new adventure.
I'll say no more, except that it starts off with a proverb...
It is well to remember
that there are five reasons for drinking:
the arrival of a friend,
one’s present or future thirst,
the excellence of the wine,
or any other reason.
