Rich, succulent, perfect for paté plates, white meats and roasted vegetables

Domaine Raymond Morin La Jalousie Anjou Loire Valley

If you are searching for a wine that is rich, succulent and easily paired with paté plates and white meats then look no further than La Falousie from Anjou in the Loire. This 2011 vintage is quality chenin blanc laced with honey flavours, a touch of butterscotch creaminess and gorgeous acidity to clear the palate for another mouthful of whatever you’re treating yourself to.

A must-try for chenin lovers (everyone then!). Very pleasurable and a bargain at £14 per bottle!

What started in El Quatre Gats tapas bar in Barcelona, soon became an adventure in the Marche region of Italy, that lies along the east coast facing Albania across the Adriatic Sea. El Quatre Gats is famously where Picasso had his first solo exhibition as a young edgy artists in the Catalan capital and I was there dining with Dr Pia Casarini Wadhams, Director of Italy’s only Polar Institute, Il Polo.


The Palazzo is located in the centre of Fermo, a small Roman hilltop town with a rich history dating back to antiquity. Flying from abroad, Ancona is the closest airport, 67km north (about an hours drive) along the coast of the Adriatic sea.
