This multi vintage blend of Riesling comes from the same vineyard with grapes harvested in 2015 and 2017. An excellent wine which in retrospect helped Philippe transition from single vintage wines into developing his Solera wines. As Philippe puts it, this technique allows him to create a much more complex wine which retains youthful and mature aromas of dried roses, honey, peaches and pear backed with a beautifully refreshing acidity.

Serve cold in a decanter, yes you read that right, in a decanter.

We'd recommend pairing it with spicy chicken and fish based asian dishes or a cheese platter.

*Natural wines like La Chimère are unfiltered and might appear cloudy, this is intended by the winemaker and does not negatively affect the wine's quality.

Founded in 1956, Domaine Brand & Fils started off as a farm that prioritised crops such as wheat, tobacco and pastures for livestock. Fast forward to 2001, the brand is all about pushing the boundaries of natural wine having been certified as biodynamic by Demeter. Led by Philippe, a third-generation winemaker, the brand values family which is why you’ll always see everyone from the winery having their lunch together daily. We were even privileged enough to join them during our second ever visit in the harvest season of 2021 where we stuffed ourselves with a large assortment of cheese and local cuisine. Salut Domaine Brand & Fils.
