2018 Cornas Les Côtes, Cave Yves Cuilleron

From vines planted in 1911, this is intense and concentrated. There’s such a wonderful balance between nervy acidity and dark cassis notes. Intense and powerful. One for the long haul.

2018 Cornas Les Côtes, Cave Yves Cuilleron
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.
