Vosne Romanée: Domaine Misset-Cheron 'Les Barreaux' 2014
'Les Barreaux' is a prime village-level lieu-dit of Vosne Romanée that sits on north-east facing slopes in a combe directly above the Grand Cru of Richebourg and the legendary Premier Cru Cros Parentoux. The perfumed and elegant wines of this appellation are the greatest expression of Pinot Noir in the world.
Yves Chéron assumed responsibility for four hectares of Côte de Nuits vines that were bought in the 1930s by his grandfather Paul Misset, including 0.7HA in Vosne Romanée 'Les Barreaux'.
At 160 hectares, Vosne Romanée (sandwiched between Clos de Vougeot and Nuits-Saint-Georges) represents the pinnacle of Pinot Noir globally with six Grand Crus.

We had been aware for many years that our goodfriends the Chérons originally hailed from Burgundy, where they retain significant vine holdings. As a younger sibling, Yves Chéron had moved to Gigondas to ply his trade, producing a range of excellent Southern Rhône reds (several of which are bottled under the popular Pascal Frères label) that have become staples of our range. Recently, Yves assumed responsibility for the 4 hectares of Côtes de Nuits vines that were bought in the 1930s by his grandfather Paul Misset and which, impressively, include 2 hectares of the 50 hectare walled Grand Cru vineyard of Clos de Vougeot.View more wines from this producer...
