Chimere CdP [Sine Qua Non & Clos St Jean] 2017 1.5L OWC


JD 95 "The 2017 Chim�re reminds me a little of the 2011 with its more elegant yet still powerful style. Beautiful notes of black cherries, blueberries, cured meats, pepper, tree bark, and new leather all emerge from the glass, followed by a rich, medium to full-bodied, tight, backward and unevolved Mourv�dre that needs forgotten for 4-5 years. As always, this cuv�e is primarily Mourv�dre (it?s normally blended with Grenache and other varieties, even some white varieties) and there are a scant 100 cases made. While I don?t think this beauty hits the heights of the 2016, it?s still a brilliant, singular wine that will evolve for 20 years or more." (June 2020)
