This is our three star, Pimant D'Espelete. Espelete is a town in Southern France in the Basque region for which this chile is named. It got to France in 1523 in the pocket of one of Columbus' sailors returning home. Today they have a chile festival there, and for good reason. This stuff has a magnificent depth and complexity that is unparalleled in the chile world.
We rate this one at three stars.
