2018 Côte-Rôtie Bassenon, Yves Cuilleron

There’s 10% Viognier in the blend here, and this gives a floral, delicate character to this Côte-Rôtie. There’s plenty of vibrancy to this wine, from the south of the appellation.

2018 Côte-Rôtie Bassenon, 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.
