Chateau Saint Rochâteau 'Chimeres' Cotes du Roussillon Villages . Languedoc-Roussillon Red 2008

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.

Rich cassis and plum, jammy, dried fruit and spice notes, well-balanced, full-bodied, great finish rounded our with pleasant tannins.
