    Domaine Yves Cheron
    Most of you have probably never heard of Yves Cheron but on Thursday...I will open your eyes to something amazing.  Actually...Yves Cheron will open your eyes, I'll just be there to open the bottles and pour the juice into your glass.

    For four generations the Cheron-Misset family have tended their famous vineyards in Burgundy with the greatest care. These vineyards date back to the 11th century when they were cultivated by the Cistercian monks and where Pinot Noir has always shown its characteristic grace and complexity.

    Throughout this  time the family have extended their property in the Rhone Valley, always with the same aim of making the best use of terroir, preferring vines with low yields on hillsides with the best aspect – where the Romans first planted vines in the first century A.D.

    Now Yves Cheron would like to offer a range of individual Cru Wines from the eight family estates.  Low yields, minute care in the vineyards, harvesting by hand, a rigorous selection of the bunches, exacting vinification and aging in temperature-controlled cellars, all combine to emphasise the fruit and concentration of each wine and the individuality of each terroir.

    2014 Domaine Yves Cheron Les Dentelles Cotes du Rhone - Comprised of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah this ripe, super roasted and deeply flavored red is a no brainer, and a case buy kind of item. There is enough juicy fruit here to just sip but because there is not too much by way of oak usage there are lots and lots of avenues you can go food wise with a wine like this. Grilled foods with a heavy char, braised meats that need a lift, burgers and even salami and cheese plates are all made more complete with a deep glug of the Cheron Cotes du Rhone.

    2012 Domaine du Grand Montmirail VV Gigondas - Plum and cherry flavors maintain a perfect balance, an intensely refined structure with hints of white pepper. The spicy flavors and rich texture make this Gigondas an ideal match for pork, duck and lamb, as well as earthy terrines, red peppers, and eggplant.

    2013 Domaine du Grand Montmirail Vacqueyras - The normal blend of 65% Grenache and 35% Syrah that was raised all in concrete tank, it offers fabulous, fruit forward notes of black raspberries, plums, candied violets and a kiss of mint to go with a medium to full-bodied, forward and supple feel on the palate.
