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. Read More...
His father, Denis Cheron, saw the untapped potential in 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.

Since taking over for his father, Yves has expanded the family’s vineyard holdings into neighboring Beaumes de Venise and Vacqueyras and now produces an impressive line of pure, elegantly-structured, Grenache-based reds without the rustic characteristics so common in wines from this region. All of the domaine’s vines are on gently-sloping hillsides at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail mountain range. Yves has also established long-term grape contracts with like-minded growers in Sarrians, Seguret and Violes for another 60 acres, which he uses for his Côtes du Rhône. Yves monitors each parcel and decides when to harvest. He then vinifies this excellent value red in the same manner as his Gigondas and Vacqueyras.

ROBERT PARKER 91-93 POINTS - "While it is a beauty, it is eclipsed by the 2009 Crozes-Hermitage Le Clos, which is a limited production offering that Read More...
is only produced in top vintages. Aged 100% in small French oak, it exhibits a striking minerality as well as copious notes of cassis, acacia flowers, licorice, herbs and spice. Combining power, intensity and elegance, this full-bodied 2009 should drink well for 12-15+ years."

ROBERT PARKER 93 POINTS - "The fascinating 2009 Gigondas Le Lieu-Dit, which comes from a 5 acre parcel planted with 95% Grenache and 5% Syrah, is aged Read More...
in older small barrels. This superb wine is a candidate for Gigondas of the vintage. Its dense ruby/purple hue is accompanied by cascading, fragrant notes of blueberries, blackberries and black cherry liqueur. Voluptuously textured, full-bodied, complex and hedonistic, this terrific, full-throttle Gigondas can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years. Don’t miss it!"

ROBERT PARKER 91 POINTS - "The excellent 2009 Gigondas (a blend of 70% Grenache, 25% Mourvedre and 5% Syrah) is a ripe, earthy effort displaying Read More...
peppery notes intermixed with garrigue, blueberries and black raspberries, super fruit (a characteristic of this vintage), low acidity and attractive lushness as well as density. It should drink nicely for a decade."

WINE SPECTATOR 89 POINTS: "This is solid, showing dark plum and berry fruit framed by roasted mesquite and tea notes. Lightly firm, with a woodspice-filled finish, but good flesh lingers, too. Drink now through 2014. 21,665 cases made." –JM

Gigondas Les Racines. Slightly better, with more color, this blend of 80% Grenache and the rest Cinsault and Syrah reveals more complexity in a savage, animal-like manner. Hints of mint, strawberry liqueur, tree bark, porcini mushrooms and kirsch emerge from this complex, concentrated Gigondas. Drink it over the next decade."

along with a big, exuberant, flamboyant bouquet of black and red fruits, crushed rocks, white chocolate and hints of garrigue as well as pepper. This meaty, full-bodied, dense 2010 will offer super drinking over the next 10-15 years."

eROBERT PARKER 94 POINTS: "Even better, and one of the wines of the vintage, the 2011 Gigondas Les Hauts de Montmirail is a rough blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Read More...
Syrah and 20% Mourvedre, with the Grenache aged in tank and the Syrah and Mourvedre in 30% new barrels. Full-bodied, textured and rich, with notable freshness and purity, it gives up brilliant aromas and flavors of smoked black fruits, melted licorice, roasted herbs and charred meats. Glass-staining purple in color, and with hints of sweet oak, it will benefit from another year or two in bottle and have over a decade of longevity. It’s seriously impressive and should not be missed!"

eROBERT PARKER 90-92 POINTS: "Moving to the releases in barrel, the 2012 Gigondas (60% Grenache and the balance mostly Mourvedre, with some Syrah) Read More...
has plenty of potential, with juicy black raspberry, sweet spice, licorice and toasty notes as well as medium to full-bodied richness and depth on the palate. Nicely balanced, it shows the purity of the vintage, as well as a relatively approachable style that should allow it to drink nicely on release."

graphite and flowers to go with a full-bodied, elegant and pure profile on the palate. It too doesn’t lack for fruit or structure and should have 15-20 years of ultimate longevity."

thrilling lavender, flowers, forest floor and sweet berry fruit, it is full-bodied, seamless and carries masses of fine tannin in its pure, refined texture. Gorgeous all around, it too should have upward of two decades of longevity."

as well as with considerable structure, it offers notions of creamy raspberry, creme de cassis, toast and licorice in its impressive, layered personality. It got a big “Wow” in the notes and should be a wine to grab up on release."

$286.99

ROBERT PARKER 96+ POINTS: "It should be fascinating to compare the potentially legendary 2010 Hermitage La Chapelle with the prodigious 2009 La Chapelle Read More...
over the next 30-40 years. About 20% new oak was used, and, as were previous vintages, the 2010 was aged 15 months prior to bottling. This black/purple-colored beauty is revealing more weight and richness than it did last year from barrel, along with great precision, stunning minerality and enormous quantities of blackberry, cassis, beef blood and smoked game intertwined with hints of graphite and acacia flowers. With good acidity and richness as well as abundant, but ripe, well-integrated tannin, this great wine equals the titan produced in 2009. Forget it for 7-10 years and drink it over the following 30-50 years."
