Dme Grand Montmirail Deux Juliettes
Heady Grenache and elegant Pinot may seem as far from each other as Moscow and Memphis. But Denis Cheron of Montmirail had just moved from Burgundy and created a co-op in the Rhone in the 60s. He handled a lot of estates’ wines but felt something special was happening at Montmirail. When the owner decided to sell, he offered it first to Cheron who he felt had so improved his wines. It’s a remarkable spot, with vineyards at 1200 feet, among the highest in Gigondas.
