As soon as the weather warms up in the summer, Montlouis-sur-Loire residents and in-the-know naturophiles start heading over to the courtyard at Lise and Bertrand Jousset’s vineyard. Here you’ll find sommelier Maude Boucan Rochette (hence the Quebec accent) and chef Guillaume Chollet (ex-Dersou) bringing some excitement to our taste buds. Seated either on the terrace (Formica tables, small fairy lights) or in the dining room (stone, metal, untreated wood), expect some straightforward ingredients to be served: tender artichokes from Le Biotope in Ville-aux-Dames, Ibaïama ham, mozzarella di bufala and toasted almonds, sardines from Douarnenez with lemony butter, canned goods from Alain Grèzes, Profil Grec olives… And small pates too, depending on what inspires them in the moment. The day we went for lunch: a fresh yellow and green zucchini salad with pieces of Albacore tuna and cubed feta, etc. // T.V.X.

FEELING THIRSTY? The vineyard’s preferred varietal, Chenin, is highly present: a very drinkable Premier Rendez-Vous (€4 a glass) or a semi-dry white Trait d’Union 2015 (€28 a bottle). Otherwise, there’s a pet’ nat’ Rose à Lies (€23) or a Grolleau red produced by their friends Jennifer Bariou and Thibaut Bodet (€22).

PRICE: Plates €5-12.
