Saint-Joseph Rouge Les Pierres Sèches, Yves Cuilleron

£33.00

An elegant and perfumed Northern Rhône Syrah

Having trained as a mechanic, Yves Cuilleron 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. 

The name refers to the drystone walls in this part of the Rhône and this lean, restrained Syrah has a certain drystone quality, except that, like the walls, it has soaked up all that sunshine, so although they are subtle, flavours of blueberry, violet and pepper come up through the cracks.
