3 generation winemakers – hand-picked grapes – wild yeasts
Domaine Yves Cuilleron
Wine has been part of Yves Cuilleron’s history for three generations, on both his paternal and maternal sides. For the last three decades, Yves has been managing the production of the family estate, overseeing all the minute details of each step to ensure that his wines are 100% ‘made by hand’ in his own unique style. For decades, the domaine has undertaken traditional, straightforward vinification. Cuilleron’s main ingredients? Hand picking of grapes, meticulous sorting in situ, alcoholic fermentation using only wild yeasts, and ageing in oak.
Yves’ ‘La Petite Côte’ Condrieu is a truly expressive and seductive wine. The nose possesses notes of apricot, quince, peach and citrus fruits alongside a backdrop of lilac, rose and violet. The palate is rich yet fresh, with a sense of spicy power and elegance.
