France's Greatest Value?!
This is a contender...
Chateau Saint-Roche's cuvee Chimeres is clearly a contender for one of the greatest values in France today. This wine has been on a roll turning out five consecutive vintages of tremendous wine that Robert Parker's Wine Advocate has rated 90 to 92 points every vintage. Track records like this are very rare, especially for a wine that retails for $16 per bottle!
This is one impressive winery that has made tremendous headway in reestablishing the notoriety of Rousillon and reminding us all that great values are still coming from Southern France.
Since the 2006 vintage of this wine we have been huge followers of this wine making sure to stock each vintage. Over the course of the years we have learned that this wine does best with a bit more time in the warehouse and really becomes expressive later on. That is why we have purposely not offered this wine until now! We wanted to make sure that it was showing to its fullest potential and this wine is delicious right now.
This is one of those great values that you should just buy by the case, as you know you will be back for more if you do not.
