"...a blend, as usual, of Grenache and Syrah with a bit of Carignan - is pungently redolent of marjoram, fennel and sage; cherry and red raspberry; black pepper and crushed stone. Hints of vanilla, caramel, and brown spices from the exposure to new 500 liter barrels during fermentation and the long cold-soak that precedes it (techniques common to most of Lafage-s reds insofar as they aren-t tank-raised) are nicely restrained and integrated. Palpably dense and satin-textured, this develops a marvelously mouthwatering savor of salted roasted meat pan-scrapings en route to a finish of impressive length...92" WA 01/14 "A joint venture between Jean-Marc Lafage and Importer Eric Solomon, the 2011 Château Saint-Roch Côtes du Roussillon Villages Chimères comes from 100-105 year old vines and is a mix of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 10% Carignan that spent 8 to 12 months in a combination of 500-Liter barrels and concrete vats. A deep, fleshy, and rich effort, it has copious black fruits, melted licorice, distilled herbs, and chocolate like aromas and flavors that flow to a full-bodied, impressively pure 2011 that has layers of fruit, solid mid-palate depth, and a chewy, rich finish that keeps you coming back to the glass. Turning more elegant and red fruit driven with air, this knockout effort is already approachable and delicious. Enjoy bottles over the coming 4-6 years, possibly longer...92" Rhone Report
