Albert Bichot Saint~Amour Les Champlettes 2014 Gamay (Beaujolais) Red Wine, $18.99-$20.99, 89 points, appeared as a rainbow of bright red colors, mostly cranberry red, but flashes of ruby and maroon complicated the chart.
Aromatic floral red cherry with just a hint of what is becoming a more standardized Necco Wafer (see: The Fun of Smelling) descriptor were intriguing.
Medium-bodied marked by mouth-watering acidity and surprising fine supportive tannin managed a rather dry red wine with flavors of cherry, strawberry, cola, and a nutty note.
Finished well on hints of white pepper and marzipan with a balanced 13% alcohol.
