Wine Name: Cuvee Jardina d'Eden Vacqueyras
Producer: Domaine Yves Cheron
Publication: Jeb Dunnuck
A special cuvée named after the winemaker, the 2016 Vacqueyras Yves Cheron is an impressive wine made from equal parts Grenache and Syrah. Completely destemmed and aged in concrete tanks, it boasts terrific notes of plums and black raspberry fruit intermixed with violets, flowers and spice. Medium to full-bodied, perfectly ripe, pure and elegant, I love its texture and would happily drink bottles over the coming 6-7 years.
