Is this the SQN/Chateau St. Jean collab?

I was wondering what one of these would go for. The Sanctus (which scored 100) has only one listing one Winesearcher for $1200. Both are magnums, release price on Sanctus is $400 while Chimere is $575. Of course Chimere has the star power with Manfred.

Correct

A collaboration between Krankl, Maurel and Cambie made up primarily of mourvedre.

The scarcity on this will be high. Only 380 mags which translates into about 63 cases. As a comparison, NOK cumulus had about 125 and 17th Nail had about 350.

One magnum of Chimere available in the UK for about $4200 US. Yikes.

Danyull . . . it's a SQN and Clos St. Jean (Chateauneuf) collaboration that is primarily Mourvedre. Have one friend on their active list and his allocation is 1 mag. He's been on the list since inception so I am guessing the limit everyone to 1 magnum. Been on the waiting list for 2 years. Got on not too long after they started taking names, but I would imagine I'm still several years from getting an allocation.

Issue with SQN these days is that once folks get on the list, most just don't seem to drop off so always hard to anticipate when you'll get an active list allocation

With NOK, I sent my email in ~45 minutes after the emailer came out . . . still on the waiting list!

Now that pricing is just outlandish!! Would be awfully curious how this bottle made its way to the UK in the first place (e.g., how many times did this puppy change hands to get to a re-seller in UK). I could easily imagine a 2-3x premium for this wine, but >7x is hard to fathom
