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

Jorge, thanks for the enthusiastic recommendation.

Parcival, appreciate the offer, however plan on drinking not making an investment.

Makes sense . . . this wine is priced well out of drinking range.

I know one person on this list, but unfortunately he has yet to open any of his bottles (has 5 vintages I believe) and is not open to selling any at this point. He also wants to drink them so I'm hoping I can benefit from his kindness in the future!

Interesting. On a side, and completely unrelated, note... How do you feel about hangers-on? You know the kind of people that do not have any real connections of their own (i.e. Chimere list members) but shamelessly benefit from those of others. Just asking.


Just enjoying the wine and avoiding the pretentious snobbery!

Well, nothing is out of Parcival's price range. He just wanted to make sure that there is always a happy ending to his purchases. Big Grin

Ok, newb question, is Chimere offered to SQN list members or is it something separate? If separate, where do you signup?

Offered to very, very, very early members of the SQN mailing list.

I think early members were told of Chimere, but thankfully, they were able to tell friends to sign up early, and some of the riff raff were able to get on the list.

PaulJ -- I kind of get what you're asking. So, this may be a response or I may be missing the boat. I have many friends from the forums and non-forum folks as well that have access to wines that I do not (and vice-versa). We all have a fairly open-access, trade/sell at-cost system that we all find fun and mutually beneficial. For example, I have friends who got on the AndreEmily list who promised me some of their allocation. And, by the same token these same folks have access to my Marcassin, SQN, and the like

That said, if there are people that truly just "hang-on" hoping to benefit from other's allocations but never make an effort to reciprocate, that's just bad form IMO

DD and Patespo . . . if you guys are in attendance, there is no price-limit.

But, DD, lest I misread your comment . . . were you suggesting something about offering happy endings Ack Devilish

Just a joke and not intended as anything else but. I have access to Ovid, Marcassin, Favia and Shafer HSS as offers arrive I will be sharing, when I have extra. Appreciate the kindness of board members to answer questions and share knowledge and info. Cheers!

I thought I was missing a bit of sarcasm in there! The air quality and O2 levels on my flight today must be particularly poor!
