Caves Yves Cuilleron Viognier 'Les Vignes d'à Côté' IGP 2018
Yves Cuilleron is a fourth-generation vigneron and has made this Domaine one of the top names in the Northern Rhone. The estate is known for combining the best of modern practice with a traditional, hands-off approach in both vineyard and winery. Yves' wines are about purity of fruit, his Saint Joseph and Côte-Rôtie wines are seriously impressive, but for a fraction of the price, his IGP level wines offer much of the same character and are every bit as well made. The Viognier for this cuvée is sourced from vineyards in the village of Chavanay that are planted in granite-infused soil. The fermentations, both alcoholic and malolactic, are done in stainless steel vats. The wines are then racked into a mix of stainless steel tanks and small barrels for a six-month elevage before bottling. The malolactic fermentation in addition to the naturally low acid levels of Viognier results in a gorgeously creamy, smooth, easy-drinking wine, with a typically aromatic Viognier nose with ripe yellow fruits and floral notes.
