Cheron Dinner header
Are we seeing the birth of a new Burgundy Superstar?
In the late 1930's, Paul Misset, Philippe Cheron's grandfather, acquired parcels of vines in the Vougeot and Nuits Saint Georges communes. Not being a wine-grower, he entrusted their management to tenant wine growers in Vosne-Romanée. Starting with these original parcels, Paul Misset's grandchildren, two generations later, have built up a wine domaine which today covers 5 hectares, spread over the Nuits Saint Georges, Vosne Romanée, Chambolle Musigny and Clos de Vougeot appellations.

The domaine's winery and cellars are located in the historical centre of Nuits Saint Georges. The vaulted 19th century cellars allow the wines to be aged in perfect conditions and the modern, efficient winery has recently been totally refurbished.

After working as technical director at Domaine Jean-Claude Belland in Santenay, Philippe Cheron took over the family estate in 2011. A trained engineer, he studied at the wine university in Suze la Rousse before gaining important experience making wine in the Rhône valley and then Burgundy. To round off this experience, he also took an agricultural training course at the Lycée Viticole in Beaune.

I have had the pleasure of tasting at the domaine for a few vintages and starting with 2015 we decided to import the wines of this small domaine. I have experienced Philippe's growing expertise and seen how successive vintages how become more spectacular. His Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Murgers 2016 was one of the most stunning wines I have ever tasted from barrel.

Being only 5 hectares in size this is a domaine that does not produce a lot of wine. In small vintages the quantity becomes even more restricted. Factor in low cropping old vines and we see production can be as little as just two barrels - less than 600 bottles for wine aficionados across the globe.

This dinner features 11 wines from Domaine Philippe Cheron from the 2016 and 2015 vintages. It includes the once-only Chambolle-Musigny Tirage 3096 Bottles 2016 - a product of the hail that ravaged Chambolle-Musigny in 2016 and necessitated the production of just one Chambolle cuvee that vintage, the outstanding Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Aux Murgers 2016, the first vintage of this wine following the return of vineyards to the domaine, and the Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2015 from vines in the climat of Les Hautes Baudes.

We'll also compare Vosne-Romanee Les Barreaux, Gevrey-Chambertin Les Seuvrees and Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Champonnet from 2016 and 2015.
