  • Winemaker's Notes:

    This 30 hectare property is situated near Maury, in the Agly valley. Using modern winemaking techniques, winemaker Jean-Michel Lafarge captures the flavour and concentrated structure of the fruit produced by old, low yielding vines. Chimères is a French word meaning “utopic dream”. This wine is deep red in colour with a perfumed black and red berry bouquet. The palate is juicy and concentrated, with the spiced strawberry fruit of old Grenache, berries and a touch of vanilla which gives an appealing, mellow character to the wine, alongside the ripe tannins and supporting firm acidity on the finish.
