2015 Saint-Joseph Les Serines, Cave Yves Cuilleron

A lifted nose of crushed violets and deep fruit gives way to an intense, flavourful palate of mulberries, dark cherries, white pepper and flowers. There’s a gorgeous, silky texture that coats the mouth, with finely judged acidity offering structure. A wine for the long haul, you overlook Saint-Joseph at your peril.

Caves Yves Cuilleron

Yves Cuilleron is an important name in the northern Rhône. His family farmed there since at least the early 1900s, and as a fourth generation winemaker, he has since taken on holdings in St.-Joseph, Condrieu and the Côte-Rôtie. While on one hand, he farms as naturally as possible, in the vineyard he has been open to experimenting with new oak. His fearlessness in trying new things in pursuit of producing world-class wines is admirable, and seems to be working.
