A top star domaine. Yves Cuilleron took over the reins as the 4th generation vigneron in 1987. He is based in Chavanay, just south of Condrieu and has built up a formidable reputation in recent years. Always developing new ideas and cuvées, he now owns and leases over 75 hectares. They are all great wines and they are all in the style of Yves Cuilleron, lingering, rich white wines and big rich minerally reds. Yves is a totally driven man with a growing family, a part share with other top growers in vineyards on the eastern side of the Rhône, and an excellent bistrot in Ampuis. He has a fantastic new cellar, purpose-built and temperature controlled.
This cuvée is sourced from vineyards in Chavanay that sit on granite-infused soil. The fermentations (alcoholic and malolactic) take place in stainless steel, then, the wine is racked into a mix of stainless steel and small barrels for six months before bottling.
