A wine from the Rhône hills made from 100% Gamay. More info

Rather unusually for this region, Yves Cuilleron has opted to cultivate the Gamay grape – with great success! It grows in granitic and alluvial soils, and is cultivated sustainably. The grapes are picked by hand, and sorted as they arrive at the cellar. Alcoholic fermentation is conducted in open vats, with around two weeks' maceration. The wine is then matured for 8 months in vats and barrique barrels. This IGP Collines Rhodaniennes wine should be drunk while still young for maximum appreciation of its fruity, floral notes. The palate is indulgent and crisp, enabling relaxed pairings with grilled meat or a charcuterie board.

IGP Collines Rhodaniennes Gamay les Vignes d'à Côté Yves Cuilleron (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Charcuteries diverses, Grillades, Chapon à la broche.

Information about domain Yves Cuilleron

Yves Cuilleron likes good food and fine wine, and makes no secret of this. Viticulture has been in his blood for three generations so it was only natural for him to take over the family vineyard in 1987. His grandfather, Claude Cuilleron, planted the plot in 1920 and began bottling his own wine in 1947. Yves initially favoured a mechanised approach but his love of good wine led him back to a more traditional approach. He does not hold any certifications but his vineyards are tended meticulously with the goal of producing the best possible grapes. All the work is carried out by hand and chemical additives are prohibited. In the winery, vinification is traditional. Yves Cuilleron strives for overall harmony in his wines which are known for their elegant expression and finesse.
