Francis Desbourdes, L’Arpenty, Chinon, Loire, France 2009

L’Arpenty produces just a single wine, so it gets plenty of care and attention. Red and green pepper on the nose, with spice and redcurrant fruit. An enjoyable, easy-drinking style, with firm fruit and tannins forming the backbone, and more spice on the finish. 17pts/20 (90/100)
