VIN
'Opaque ruby. Expressive blackberry, cherry, olive paste and smoky bacon scents are lifted by a peppery quality. Juicy dark fruit and violet pastille flavors show very good energy and become sweeter with air. Rich but lively and well-balanced, showing strong finishing thrust and supple tannins that add shape and gentle grip. Drink 2022- 2029.' – Josh Raynolds, Vinous, 92/100 (Apr 2018)

'An elegant bouquet that mixes Syrah’s red berry fruits with Viognier’s floral character (violets). Elegant, fresh and airy on the palate. Subtle yet prominent tannins. Drink for the primary aromas during the first 5 years, or for the secondary aromas up to 10 years and more.' – Winemaker

Producer information Yves Cuilleron, the brilliant Rhône winemaker, took over the family estate in 1987. The estate, located in Verlieu, was founded in 1920 by Claude Cuilleron, making Yves' the third generation winemaker. While he had not intended following his family in making wine, he found his way back to the vines when his uncle retired with no successor to take his place. Since he took over, Yves has been involved in every aspect of the winemaking, undertaking new construction and redesigning his facilities. As he says, 'I focus on everything. That's the price you pay for quality.'.
