Vacqueyras: Domaine du Grand Montmirail 2020

"Lots of Provençal notes of red and black fruits, spice, and peppery garrigue emerge from the 2020 Vacqueyras, a medium to full-bodied, sweetly fruited, pure, nicely balanced 2020 barrel sample. It should certainly be an outstanding wine. The blend is 55% Grenache and 45% Syrah. 90-92/100."

Tasting Notes

A dense powerful Grenache-based belter with notes of blackcurrants spices and garrigue. Lovely, ripe plum and black pepper bouquet and briary, hedgerow berry flavours on the palate.

Négociant-vinificateur Yves Chéron produces highly-accessible, fruit-forward, Grenache-based reds that have acquired a loyal following among the Yapp cognoscenti. His 'Grand Montmirail' bottlings of Vacqueyras and Gigondas are from his personal vine-holdings and have more concentration and aging potential than the 'Pascal Frères' cuvées, which are immediately accessible from release.

Yves Chéron

Yves Chéron (aka Pascal Frères) is a Négociant-Vinificateur – a wine merchant and winemaker, who lives on an attractive estate below the Dentelles de Montmirail. He produces his own Gigondas & Vacqueyras (both named Grand Montmirail) from vineyards at the domaine, as well as vinifying wines from bought in grapes at his négociant enterprise, Pascal Frères, which is situated between the two villages.
