The 2012 Cave Yves Cuilleron Condrieu La Petite Cote is a white wine entirely made from Viognier. This particular grape variety might not be the most famous and this is mainly due to the struggles growers face to cultivate it. In fact, the grapes have naturally low acidity and require a lot of sun to ripen properly. At the same time, too much heat can result in excessive alcohol, ultimately jeopardising those distinctive apricot notes that bring significant appeal to the variety.

The key for successfully cultivating Viognier is hence finding the right balance and control the hazards: we believe Yves Cuilleron is one of the masters. This specific wine from his portfolio comes from Condrieu, arguably the most distinctive wine appellation in Rhone and home of white wines made exclusively from Viognier.

The 2012 Cave Yves Cuilleron Condrieu La Petite Cote displays the Viognier’s characteristic apricot aroma, alongside hints of lemon, pear, honey and almond. Particularly suitable to be enjoyed with pork or soft cheese, we would also recommend to pick this wine for a well thought gift or a date.
