A well-titled Sancerre

Just a short post, from a lovely 5 days at Champneys.

Lots of exercise, and a goodly amount of rest.

I am delighted to confirm that this place has moved firmly from a health FARM to a health SPA - which is code for 'a bit less stern and Swedish, and you can have wine with dinner'.

So, the (half) bottle of choice has been the very appropriately named fish wine, Sancerre Blanc, Armand Salmon, 2008. Not as cutting and pungently grassy as some, this has a great balance of richness and freshness, and a lovely fresh length of flavour. Really very nice indeed. A quick search on the inter-web brings this up as £12.40 from Fine Wines Direct.

Now, back to the Spinning classes..then a wrap..then fit ball..then a massage..is this supposed to be restful??
