Syrah vines grow on the terraces of Cornas along the right bank of the Rhône. They are located over 250m above sea level on terraces of decomposed granite and benefit from a micro climate that gives the wine a lovely mineral framework. 5,000 bottles are produced annually from 1.2 ha of vines. The harvest is manual and the grapes are destemmed. Vinification takes place in thermo-regulated vats. There is frequent, careful pump-over and punch-down. Maximum colour is extracted. Malolactic fermentation is done in new barrels and the wine is aged in new barrels before being bottled after 18 months. Over time, this Cornas which is suitable for ageing, shows great finesse.

Cornas Le Village Yves Cuilleron (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Médaillons d Autruche à l échalote, Canard à la roannaise, Légumes croquants aux herbes.

    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.
