Last week I had to undertake the arduous task of tasting Rigoletto, a new cuvée at Prieuré La Chaume, whilst talking to Christian Chabirand, from whose loins Rigoletto sprang, about shooting a portrait of the new born in his christening outfit. Not exactly from his loins, all right, but from the 12 hectares of this small, but excellent, vignoble in the wine wilderness of the Vendée, that he and Estelle Chabirand planted in 1998 and which now produces a range of structured reds, a delicious Chardonnay and a couple of very sexy rosés. If you’re driving through the South Vendee, head for Vix and Prieuré La Chaume to buy some unexpected Vendéen goodies.
