YVES CHERON 2011 COTES DU RHONE LES DENTELLES

Burgundian Yves Cheron graduated from the Lycée Viticole in Beaune in 1983 and headed south the following year to assume control of the family’s new domaine in the Southern Rhône. His father, Denis, Cheron, recognized the untapped potential of some of the region’s lesser-known appellations back in the early 1960s and left Burgundy to set up shop in this sun-baked sub-region of Provence. Denis purchased a production facility in Vacqueyras and began vinifying wines for several area growers. It wasn’t long before he had earned the trust and friendship of his client-vignerons. In 1982, one of them, the heirless owner of Grand Montmirail in Gigondas, decided to retire and gave Denis right of first refusal to buy his domaine in the appellation’s southeast sector.
An earthy nose of violets, white pepper and sea salt leads to a palate rich in flavor: dark fruits, savory herbal tones, notes of briar and tilled soil. One of the many reasons why we love this region in the south of France are on display in this bottling: the fantastic price of this bottling is trumped by the quality of the wine inside, it will drink wonderfully with or without food, it's easy-going and relaxed, like the Rhône sun.
