2015 Chimère (Sine Qua Non) Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L) (Previously $2000)

SKU #1341974 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Chimère is a selection of Mourvèdre made by the Maurel brothers of Clos Saint Jean, oenologist Philippe Cambie, and Sine Qua Non genius Manfred Krankl. I believe there’s a touch of Grenache in the blend, as well as some Clairette and other varieties, but the bulk of this cuvée comes from the famed la Crau lieu-dit and is brought up all in demi-muids. It offers a beautiful perfume of sweet kirsch and blueberry fruit intermixed with loads of licorice, sweet spice, violets, and crushed rocks. Full-bodied, super intense, sweetly fruited, perfumed, and complex, it’s a gorgeous 2015 that does everything right. Forget bottles for 4-6 years and it should keep for 2 to 3 decades. Inner quote mark (2/2018)

K&L Notes

A very rare bottling from a great vintage, Chimère is made in partnership between Clos Saint-Jean’s Maurel brothers (Vincent and Pascal), oenologist Philippe Cambie, and Sine Qua Non's Manfred Krankl.
