2015 Yves Cheron "Les Dentelles" Côtes du Rhône

SKU #1339118 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 I was blown away by the 2015 Côtes du Rhône Yves Cheron les Dentelles. Made from 65% Grenache and 35% Syrah aged all in cement, it’s a big, rich, full-bodied beauty that’s loaded with notions of kirsch, blackberries, toasted spices and white pepper. Deep, rich, concentrated and impeccably balanced, it’s the real deal. (JD)  (12/2016)

I continue to be surprised by the $15 and under Cotes-du-Rhones from 2015. Expecting rich, sweltering wines, I continue to find them exceptionally balanced with soaring aromatics and bright fruit. The Yves Cheron displays a bright, floral nose with blackberry notes and forward acidity that brightens the fruit on the palate. I was especially pleased that the wine had just a touch of tannic structure to frame everything and bring the wine together. At its price point, this is definitely my favorite Cotes-du-Rhones on the shelf.

This is a lot of wine for $12.99. The nose is composed of blackberry coulis and black cherry with a spicy, white pepper and violet note thanks to the Syrah. Dry and full of complexity, this wine has great length. The cement aging leaves it bright and clean with wonderful acidity and great fruit on the palate. A really beautiful wine for everyday drinking.

Delicious aromas of soft, bruised fruit with a violet edge, this wine has great concentration and a lot of flavor without being too heavy. I would consider this wine to have a touch more body than a lot of catch-all Cotes-du-Rhones, which makes it super fun and versatile.

A boisterous and delightful style to say the least, this Grenache-Syrah blend captures the essence of both the region and the quality of the 2015 vintage. Composed of fruit around Vacqueyras, Beaumes de Venise and Gigondas, the wine is named for the famous jagged limestone monoliths along the ridge of the Montmirail, the "Dentelles." Packed with flavors of raspberry coulis and peppery spices, the wine is open and inviting, giving you sweet fruit and length. It is a worthy wine of the region which harkens to some of the best that producers like St. Cosme and the Perrin family create.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
