2008 Chateau de Villeneuve Saumur Champigny: Good

sept. 30, 2010: i thought this loire valley red had a nose of brown sugar, with some green pepper to the flavor. it was tannic, with some black pepper at the end. greg liked it a lot, saying it was sweet and cherry in the nose, with slight tannins. he said it ended with some tartness, but it was smooth and pleasant overall. this was 13 percent alcohol. we had this at "le pommier," a restaurant in bayeux that will best be remembered not for the wine, or the food, but for the french hostess with the extremely pinched facial expression.
