Denis’s son 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. Since taking over for his father, Yves has expanded the family’s vineyard holdings and now produces an impressive line of pure, elegantly structured, Grenache-based reds without the rustic characteristics so common in wines from this region.
Cassis and boysenberry flavors are ripe yet vibrant in this fruit-focused wine. A blend of Grenache and Syrah, it's full bodied but spry, finishing on a revitalizing mineral crush. Silky, integrated tannins make it approachable now but the wine should drink well through 2030.
