Natalie's Score: 93/100
Love the incredible range of styles that the Rhone region produces, like this intriguing red wine blend. Full-bodied and deeply savoury. Wow, so different: love it! Violets, black plum, deep dive black raspberry into a heart of welling darkness and satisfaction. Platonic ideal of concentration and depth with a long, sensuous finish that leaves you bathed in flavour satisfaction. Pair with hearty meat dishes and deep conversations.
Food pairings: hearty meat dishes, hamburger.

|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
New leather and red cherry hit your first, followed by aromas of smoke and white pepper. The taste is full and acidic with some nice tannins. Long tannic cherry finish.
|Produced by Domaine Lafage, this robust Rhone red wine from 2011 vintage of this Cotes du Roussillon Chimeres is a blend of mostly Grenache and Syrah grapes, with a splash of Carignan. The wine undergoes an extended cold-soak that's not in stainless steel tanks, then fermentation in 500 litre barrels. The vineyards are located close to the village of Maury in the Rhone Valley. - Community Wine Reviews|
