Tasting Notes

A fresh, precise, fruity nose. Subtle and taut on the palate, and bursting with lovely fruit. Mild, subtle tannins. A selection of vines on the hillsides of the north of Saint Joseph. Assemblage of the plots best expressing fruit and freshness. “Les Pierres Sèches” is not a district, it refers to the dry stone walls used to strengthen the vine terracing on sandy, granitic, shallow. High-density planting (8,000-10,000 vines per hectare). The grapes are hand-picked; and then sorted, crushed and partially destemmed in the cellar. Fermented in open, temperature-controlled vats for about 3 weeks, with regular cap-punching and pumping-over. Malolactic-fermented in barriques with native yeasts. Maturing 18 months in barriques. - Importer Note

The top Cuilleron wines are planted 8000-10000 vines per hectare. There are no insecticides (for the last 20 years) or herbicides used in the vineyards. Yves Cuilleron rejects off-the-shelf ideas. His vision of vine cultivation is highly personal: not conventional, not organic, not biodynamic. And his philosophy is simple: "Produce the best possible grapes”. He practises "viticulture reasonable”, an integrated, eco-friendly approach in which observation is critical. All vine work vital to grape quality is conducted: planting of Viognier vines deriving solely from the family’s yards ("selections massales”), and of Syrah vines from high-quality clones and from "selections massales”. - Importer Note
