Yves Cuilleron – Côte Rôtie Bassenon 2012
Wine has been part of Yves Cuilleron’s history for three generations, on both his paternal and maternal sides. His paternal grandfather started operations in 1920, and began to sell his own wine bottles in 1947. In 1960, the Yves’s uncle Antoine took over the estate and field management. For the last three decades, Yves has been managing the production of the family estate, overseeing all the minute details of each step to ensure that his wines are 100% “made by hand” in his own unique style.
Delicate mild floral nose, slightly smoky. Nice red fruit aromas. Well-balanced and smooth mouth with spicy and silky tannins. Suggested food pairing: meat with a delicate yet characterful texture (e.g. roast quail with spice bread and prunes).
