Description

A harmonious and balanced Crozes-Hermitage white wine

The estate

In 1920, the estate came upon the scene when Claude Cuilleron began to work his land to produce great wines. Since then, three generations have succeeded each other at the head of the estate, passing on ancestral skills steeped in tradition. In 1987, Yves Cuilleron, Claude's grandson, took over the reins of the estate and personally saw to it that its reputation spread internationally. Thanks to his passion and dynamism, he transformed his grandfather's 3.5 hectares into a vast wine estate covering 90 hectares of vines. Today, inseparable from its talented owner, the Cave Yves Cuilleron is one of the finest references in the northern Rhône Valley.

The vineyard

Les Rousses 2022 is a Crozes-Hermitage wine made from a blend of plots located in the south of the appellation, near the village of Mercurol in the hamlet "Malfondières." There, the vines are anchored in a fluvio-calcareous alluvium. To preserve this precious terroir, Yves Cuilleron does not use insecticides and the very little fertiliser he uses is organic.

Winemaking and ageing

After the harvests done by hand, the estate carries out a traditional, plot-based vinification. Oenological products are put aside as much as possible in favour of indigenous yeasts. After alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged for 16 months on its lees, 50% in 30 hectolitre wooden tuns and 50% in Burgundy barrels without racking. The wine from the different plots are blended before bottling.

Blend

Les Rousses 2022 from Yves Cuilleron is 100% Marsanne.
