Yves Cuilleron "Cavanos" St Joseph 21750 ml
A selection of 20-40 year old Syrah vines from hillside terraces on muscovite-rich granite soils, Cavanos is the ancient name for the village of Chavanay. Aged for 16 months in barrels, the aroma is complex, with notes of mature red fruits and hints of graphite and classic Syrah smokiness. Well-balanced on the palate, with fresh spice, and a lovely, lengthy finish. Pairs well with pork chops, hearty lamb ragu, and braised beef. Drink now, or save it for another 5 years
The Cuilleron estate, located in Verlieu, a hamlet of Chavanay just south of Condrieu, is one of the benchmark producers of the Rhone. Yves Cuilleron makes an assortment of wines from multiple appellations, including Condrieu, Saint Péray, Crozes-Hermitage, Saint Joseph, Cote Rotie, and Vin de Pays from the Collines Rhodaniennes. Cuilleron has been described by the wine press as "the leader of Condrieu's new generation of winemakers” and his wines straddle the divide between traditionalists and the new-wave, in the sense that they retain their sense of place, but express their sites in an approachable, immediate way, with purity, precision, grace, and joy.
