From the Critics:
- "Made from 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Carignan, the 2012 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Chimeres is mind-blowing stuff that comes from 100- to 105-year-old vines and spent 8-12 months in a combination of 500-liter barrels and concrete vats. From primarily schist soils, it boast knockout aromas of black currants, smoked earth, licorice and wild herbs that give way to a full-bodied, voluptuously textured effort that has a loaded mid-palate, no hard edges and serious length on the finish. Possessing a solid 4-5 years of prime drinking (if not more), it’s a brilliant value that readers need to snatch up."
"A new venture between Jean-Marc Lafage and importer Eric Solomon, Chateau St. Roch is located in the Agly Valley, in the appellation of Maury. The majority of the vines were planted in the 1930s and lie at elevations ranging from 360 to 1,110 feet. Both the red and white tasted here are superb." (02/14) -
