Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

($40) Green-gold. Racy citrus zest and quince aromas, with exotic floral accents. Fresh pear, lime and acacia honey flavors are deep but also energetic, picking up a hint of anise on the long, spicy finish. I find this 100%-marsanne wine really elegant today.

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.

Wine Varietal: Marsanne


This white variety is grown worldwide and produces full-bodied, heavily aromatic wines. Typically grown in France's northern Rhone region, Marsanne is the primary grape of the white wines of Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, and Saint Joseph. While wines made from Marsanne can be dull in their youth, when produced well they have light, fruity, and perfumed characteristics, as well as the ability to age superbly. Outside of France, small amounts of this variety can be found in Australia, Switzerland, and the United States. Typical descriptors for Marsanne include spice, pear, melon, honeysuckle, nuts and quince.
