Inky ruby. Pungent black and blue fruit and pungent floral aromas, along with hints of cracked pepper, licorice and violet. Broad, seamless and appealingly sweet, offering juicy blueberry and violet pastille flavors and hints of spicecake and bitter chocolate. Clings with strong tenacity and spiciness on the finish, which is framed by smooth, building tannins. -- Josh Raynolds
The Cuilleron family domaine, located in the hamlet ofVerlieu (part of the town of Chavanay) was founded several generations ago(1920). Yves Cuillerons grandfather was the first to bottle wine forcommercial purposes in 1947. Antoine Cuilleron, the uncle and immediatepredecessor of Yves, assumed control of the domaine in 1960 and significantlyincreased the percentage of wine bottled at the estate and extended the scopeof the domaine. Yves assumed full ownership and direction of the domaine in 1987 and, since that time, has built an entirely new facility while at the sametime acquiring additional vineyard property. The domaine is now (as of 2012) significantlylarger in scope with 52 hectares of vineyards that cover multiple appellations,including principally, Condrieu, Saint Joseph Rouge and Blanc, Cote Rotie,Saint Pray and a series of Vin de Pays from the Collines Rhodaniennes. We haverepresented the domaine since the early 1980s when we began our collaborationwith Antoine Cuilleron and began to import his Condrieu and Saint Joseph Rouge. Rosenthal Wine Merchant
