2017 Chimère (Sine Qua Non) Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L) (Previously $1500)

SKU #1462148 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chimère 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 Mourvèdre that needs forgotten for 4-5 years. As always, this cuvée is primarily Mourvèdre (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. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

K&L Notes

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.
