    This sweet little value is quite complex on the nose and palate with tobacco, mild spice, savory herb, wild raspberry fruit and a finish that reminds me of ice cold well water. Quite silky and fine for the for the price; this will remind you of the tasty, food friendly carafes that are ubiquitous at Parisian cafes.

    This is a killer deal on a delicious everyday drinking cab franc that is succulent and juicy. There is plenty of roasted red pepper and raspberry notes mixed with a savory oregano spice on the palate. The acidity is nice and lively with fine tannins on the finish making this a versatile food partner you will want on your dinner table!

    Great, not-too-serious Chinon for your mid-week drinking. Flavors of stewed peppers, leather, and bright maraschino cherries with a nice, soft acidic finish. It's light to medium-bodied with light, soft tannins.
    Top Value!

    Need a little spice in your life? This Chinon is for you. Cedar cigar box and cinnamon spice jump out of the bottle upon popping the cork. Get it into your glass and a world of red and black fruits open up. Raspberries in particular come to mind. A touch of roasted green pepper adds a pleasant vegetal quality, but is never offensive. It plays well with the fruitiness. Quite light in body, but with a nice tannin mouthfeel and fresh acidity. All around, an excellent wine at a very reasonable price!

    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.
