Francois Pinon Vouvray Les Trois Argiles
Brand Francois Pinon
The 2011 Domaine François Pinon Vouvray Les Trois Argiles ($20) is what is known informally as sec tendre, meaning it straddles the line between dry and semi-sweet.
There is a slight, winsome bit of sweetness to the Trois Argiles, but it tastes more like exuberantly ripe fruit than anything else, and it is leavened by lots of refreshing acidity and the chalky minerality that is also typical of Vouvrays. This is a delicious, lip-smacking white that will immediately strike you as an ideal springtime quaffer.
100% Chenin Blanc
