In & around Chinon

A few photos taken in and around Chinon on Wednesday this week.  The Spring colours are lovely with the trees in blossom and the fields of oil seed rape a brilliant yellow.  

Chateau du Petit Thouars - good reds from the Cabernet Franc grape currently in the Touraine appellation but soon to come under the umbrella of Chinon

Overlooking Chinon from the castle

The pretty vineyards of Domaine de la Noblaie in Ligré just outside Chinon
