"A joint venture between Jean-Marc Lafage and Eric Solomon, the 2013 Cotes du Roussillon Chimeres is just another example of the brilliance of the 2013 vintage in the Roussillon. Coming all from the schist soils of Maury and a blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Carignan that spent 8-12 months in 500-liter barrels and concrete, it possesses a deep purple color to go with savory notes of kirsch and assorted darker berry fruits, pepper, truffle and damp earth. Full-bodied, thrillingly textured and with incredible purity of fruit, this knockout effort stays lively and elegant, with fine tannin, terrific length and no hard edges. It will knock your socks off over the coming 4-6 years."~JD

Fabulous Value - Another amazing value suggested by Empire Wine. From Eric Solomon Selections. It is a wonderful blend with nice balance and a hint of the chalky, clay soil that gives it personality . Very easy to drink and very easy on the pocketbook. I love it.

Very good value Languedoc Red - A soft, drinkable wine at a very good price. Classic Languedoc blend, not terribly complex but perfectly pleasant and ready to drink right now.

Loved the complexity - ...however my guests felt that it was a little too funky and distracted from their meal. In my opinion I want a wine to stop a conversation, briefly, but others just want to feel warmed and loved at dinnertime.
