The 2014 Angelliaume Chinon happily straddles the divide between savory and sweet. If there is ultimately rather more of the former than the latter, such fruit as the wine has shows itself to good effect. Plummy notes pick up leafy, roasted bell pepper, chili powder accents on the nose. Fresh, bright, and juicy up front, with modest tannins, the palate finally resolves in the direction of spice, lentil, and grilled Portobello mushrooms. If you are looking for a versatile, lighter bodied, any-old-day red wine, this has more than enough charm and character to recommend itself.
