Review: *** $$ Chimeres Chateau Saint-Roch, Cotes du Roussillon Villages, France, 2006

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Chimeres Chateau Saint-Roch.

Original tasting and review : This is Chimeres Chateau Saint-Roch, Cotes du Roussillon Villages, France, 2006, finished at 14% alcohol and first sampled at seven years of age. This is a blend of 60% black grenache, 30% syrah and 10% carignan.

In the glass: Deep magenta with some brick at the edge.  Muddy and opaque in the center.

On the nose: Poured at cool room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows bright, aromatic shoe polish fruit.  From the aroma, seems like this will be sweet but perhaps with a charge of bitterness.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact multi-layered in its shoe-polish, purple aromatics; showing full bright fruit and prickly purple depth.  Finish is sleek.

In summary: Overall, rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.
