La Grand Comtadine Cotes du Rhone NV.jpg

Denis Cheron, originally from Burgundy’s Côtes du Nuits, fell in love with the region and its potential and bought La Grand Comtadine in the 1960’s. Using his knowledge of Burgundian winemaking practices, Denis improved the conditions of the vineyards. His efforts were rewarded with healthy, quality grapes that had developed finesse and showed the terroir in the glass.
