"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!"

Product Description:

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.
