Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 91

($95) Yellow-gold. Stony, leesy pear and white peach aromas are precise and fresh, and complicated by oak spices and minerals. Shows broad pit fruits and smoked meat on the palate, picking up a seductive truffle note on the finish. Has the concentration of a liqueur, but also possesses excellent balance and admirable freshness.

About This Producer


Since taking over the family domaine in 1987, Yves Cuilleron has become one of the leaders of Condrieu's new generation of winemakers. His wines deftly straddle the fence of traditional and progressive and reflect a bold, broad purity of fruit and mineral that is perfectly balanced on the razor's edge of acidity and palate weight. Though mostly known for his Condrieu (Viognier), his reds excel at expressing the uniqueness of the St. Joseph appellation. This appellation tends to produce Syrah with a bit more elegance and red-fruit (raspberry, dusty cherry, pomegranate) character. The wines show nuances of licorice, earth and white pepper. Cuilleron also makes a Cote-Rotie (Syrah) and a St. Joseph-Blanc from Marsanne and Roussanne.
