Having trained as a mechanic, Yves got bitten by the wine bug in the 1980s. So when his uncle retired in 1987, Yves jumped at the chance to run the family estate. At the time, Condrieu was relatively unknown, and Yves’ perfectionist approach from vine-planting to wine bottling resulted in wines that were to grab the attention of both consumers and critics – making them hugely in-demand, and raising the profile of the appellation as a whole. Even though he is most famous for his Condrieu, don’t overlook Yves’ red wines from St.-Joseph and Côte Rôtie which are made to the same exacting standards. From the far north of the appellation, St.-Joseph ‘Pierres Sèches’ shows spice and Condrieu-like perfume.

Other wines by this producer

  1. 2008 Côte Rôtie, Les Terres Sombres, Domaine Yves Cuilleron

    Intensely purple/black in colour, almost opaque. The nose is a concentrated wall of spices, mineral tones and dark berry fruits. Deeply concentrated, tight and seriously well structured, the palate is immense in its breadth and length showing a wealth of blackberry, fruits of the forest and spiced, wooded flavours. The firm finish means you won't forget this one easily.

  3. 2011 St. Joseph Les Pierres Sèches, Domaine Cuilleron

    Ruby red in colour with an elegant perfumed fruity nose of raspberry, blueberry, violet and pepper. Fruity, juicy and on the lean side, but firm on the finish.

  5. 2012 Condrieu La Petite Côte, Domaine Cuilleron

    Pineapple and hay aromas with some by floral and herbaceous nuances. Juicy, light and fresh; a wine of modest size and depth, but one with good mineral spine and liveliness.

  6. 2011 Condrieu Vertige, Domaine Yves Cuilleron

    The Vertige is sourced from Yves' oldest and highest vines. Tropical and citric fruits flavour persist, balanced by 18 months in oak.

  7. 2012 Viognier VDF, Domaine Cuilleron

    This is an aromatic wine, with delicate floral notes and hints of apricot; fresh and dry.

  8. 2012 Condrieu Les Chaillets, Vieilles Vignes, Domaine Cuilleron

    Wonderfully opulent and perfumed on the nose with dollops of honey allied to blossom and spicy complexity. The palate is rich and full again with great acidity, giving the wine and exceptional balance, and we suspect longevity.
