The Condrieu Les Chaillets winery Domaine Yves Cuilleron is a very powerful white wine with an aromatic scent of apricots, blossoms, raisins, peach and a perfect hint of vanilla. In terms of taste, not too much wood, but nice and juicy and fruity with a lot of concentration.

Yves Cuilleron represents the third generation of winemakers. Cave Cuilleron has existed since 1920. In 1987, the domain came into the hands of Yves through his grandfather and uncle. Together with François Villard, Yves Cuilleron is one of the greatest talents in the Northern Rhône today. Wine Spectator calls him the leader of the new generation of winemakers in the Condrieu. Most of his vineyards are in and around Chavanay, just south of Condrieu. In total he has 59 hectares spread over Saint Joseph (Blanc), Saint Joseph (Rouge), Côte-Rôtie and Condrieu.

Yves has an important slogan... pick the grapes as ripe as possible! He is a gourmet who loves good food and 'Les Vins Gourmand'. You can also taste that in his wines. He makes his wines '100% maison'. Per parcel or type of wine, he monitors the Cuilleron style of the cuvée in question, without compromise. However, nothing is set in stone for him. He works on feeling, experience and continues to observe and adjust. He selects the fruit from the older and younger vines. He does the same with the different plots. He only blends different plots if there are sufficient synonyms or properties that complement each other.

In terms of winemaking, Yves goes his own way. He doesn't follow trends. He does not work conventionally, organically and not biodynamically, but according to his own philosophy aimed at obtaining healthy grapes. He continuously observes in order to be able to intervene in time. He has been working sustainably for 20 years according to la lutte raisonnée; a sensible way of making wine without pesticides and fertilizers. In the cellar he works with natural yeasts and prefers to use older foeders and barriques instead of steel tanks.
