"Giving up jammy notes of black raspberries, licorice, smoked herbs and chocolate, the 2015 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Chimeres (aged in demi-muid and concrete vates) needs to be snatched up by savvy readers. Full-bodied, deep and layered with incredible texture, I actually called this a mini SQN. I would gladly pay three to four times the going rate. Bravo!"
Chimeres is made from vines of Grenache, Syrah and Carignan planted on black schist and schistous clay soils near the village of Maury and at the base of the mountain-top fortress of Quéribus – one of the last sanctuaries of the Cathars. Made through a strict selection of fruit, first at the vineyard and then a berry by berry selection after destemming, Chimeres captures the dark fruit flavors and spicy minerality of the black schist soils of Agly valley.
