Domaine Cheysson 2006 La Precieuse Vieilles Vignes Gamay (Chiroubles)
The wine comes from a parcel on the steep slopes of Chiroubles called Les Roches, appropriately enough with its very stony soil. It is a gorgeous, ripe wine, with light toast over the black fruits, ripe plums, cherries. The tannins are now soft, but still give weight to the rich, velvet texture of the sumptuous fruits.
Domaine Cheysson 2008 Cuvée Tradition Gamay (Chiroubles)
Great structure and ripe fruit produce a wine that has both sweetness, concentration and richness. The spice and acidity combine to create a full-bodied wine, packed with black berry fruits and an edge of minerality.
Domaine Cheysson 2006 Gamay (Chiroubles)
A structured, ripe wine with big, boisterous fruit. There are fresh strawberry flavors, hints of banana and candy; the aftertaste is solid, with dry tannins.
