Wine Description:
Discover the legacy of Domaine Jean Deydier Les Clefs d’Or, rooted in two of Chateauneuf's eminent vineyards. The Les Clefs d’Or Cha^teauneuf du Pape Rouge, an embodiment of this heritage, seamlessly blends Grenache, Mourveedre, Syrah, Cinsault, Muscardin, Counoise, and Vaccare`se in a harmonious vinification. Originating in the late 19th century, Maurice Deydier's cooperage skills birthed a small domaine, evolving under his son Jean's vision into today’s revered estate. Awarded the Chevalier du Merite Agricole in 1957, Jean expanded the holding to 20 hectares in Chateauneuf-du-Pape and 12 in Côtes du Rhône Massif d’Uchaux. The family tradition continues with Pierre, aided by daughter Laurence and nephew Jean-Francois, marking the sixth generation.

Yves Gras' Gigondas is likely the most concentrated in the appellation. His old vines (averaging over 50 years old), coupled with a very late harvest, make this possible. Intense, bold, herbal, and wonderfully complex for the region. Only in very exceptional years does the Domaine produce an additional Cuvee des Hautes Garrigues. This Gigondas undoubtedly ranks among the world's best wines: extreme concentration beautifully combines with intense, refined fruit notes. The masses of tannins are perfectly rounded and civilized. The plots for this cuvée are planted with vines over 80 years old, yielding only 15 hectoliters per hectare. Noteworthy is the exceptionally good Côtes du Rhône, the benchmark in this price range.

The Cuilleron family has a rich winemaking heritage spanning three generations. It all began with their grandfather in 1920, followed by Uncle Antoine, who assumed control in 1960. Yves Cuilleron, at the age of 26, continued the legacy by establishing himself in Verlieu and taking over the estate in 1987. Over the years, the domaine significantly expanded from its initial 3.5 hectares in Condrieu and Saint-Joseph to an impressive 59 hectares, encompassing renowned appellations throughout the northern Rhône Valley. Seven hectares of these vineyards lie in the Côte-Rôtie appellation, characterized by a uniform granitic terroir on the right bank of the Rhône River. Yves Cuilleron's approach to winemaking rejects passing trends, as he neither adheres to conventional nor biodynamic methods. Instead, he follows his unique philosophy, with a simple goal: cultivating the finest grapes possible. All vineyard tasks, from pruning to harvest, are meticulously performed by hand, free from herbicides and exclusively relying on organic fertilizers. The wines undergo aging exclusively in barrels, with white wines maturing for nine months and red wines up to eighteen months.
