• Domaine Yves Cheron plus the Clape! 1/5

    Tasting starts at 4pm
    Cost $5 per human
    It's gonna be raining on Friday so I figured we pull out a producer that I love and I feel gets overlooked by most. Domaine Yves Cheron. Being 4th generation growers, the three wines we'll be tasting are some of the finest wines from the Rhone region yet you won't have to give a kidney to buy them...unless you want to.

    2014 Domaine Yves Cheron "Les Dentelles" Cotes du Rhone - I was in no way angry at the price, I was down-right shocked by just how very low it was for the quality of red wine I was tasting. 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.

    2015 Domaine Yves Cheron "Le Coteau de la Baume" Crozes Hermitage - Nope...you'll have to taste this sucker in order to get them.

    2013 Domaine Yves Cheron Gigondas Vieilles Vignes Grand Montmirail - A really full bodied red with dark fruit and tar characters, deep earthy hints on a background of old oak wood flavours. A complex wine that drinks now but will keep for at least 10 years. The perfect wine with grilled steaks and venison dishes.

    Plus I'll be throwing in a Syrah from Domaine Auguste Clape for fun...the 2016 Le Vin des Amis. Why? It's a new year and you've haven't gotten the Clape since 2017!
