Yves Cuilleron – Cote Rotie Madiniere
Wine has been part of Yves Cuilleron’s history for three generations, on both his paternal and maternal sides. His paternal grandfather started operations in 1920, and began to sell his own wine bottles in 1947. In 1960, the Yves’s uncle Antoine took over the estate and field management. For the last three decades, Yves has been managing the production of the family estate, overseeing all the minute details of each step to ensure that his wines are 100% “made by hand” in his own unique style.
Nose of ripe red fruits and smoke with a few notes of spices. A harmonious and ample mouth. Silky tannins and a long fresh finish. Suggested food pairings: red meats (e.g. shepherd’s pie with duck confit, Jerusalem artichoke and truffle).
