Food Pairings for Domaine Yves Cuilleron St. Péray Les Potiers
A 70/30 blend of Marsanne Roussanne that spent 9 months in barrel. # 839 of ~6800 btls produced. This wine has a lovely pale yellow-golden colour, with youthful perfume of peach blossom, lemon cheesecake and apricot. Dry, full-bodied, there is plenty of acidity which one should expect of whites from this region and in this style. Rich flavours of white peach and lemon that is accompanied by an aspect of minerality. There is fine balance between the weight of the flavours and the acid load. Perfect with a creamy seafood pot pie garnished with oak smoked salt. Drink now – 2015. 91/100. I’ve had many aged Marsanne wines before, but I’m wondering whether Roussanne has a similar ability to age. Has anyone tried Rousannes 7-10 years old? Does it change dramatically with the development of secondary characteristics? I’d love to know.
Drunk with roast beef and fried potatoes. At the opening of the strong scents of reduction. Consequently, setting decanter and stirred three hours before. Profile change. Always deviant animal notes but no longer mask the flavors of fruit. Acidity is noticeable on the nose. On the palate, clean attack on the fruit. Goes fast enough to leave room for acidity. Calmed in the final, softer. Difficult vintage, compared to 2006: the fruit is borne at arms length. Reviews of maturity: The perceived lacks of structure in this wine (it did not have much to lose now) and experience of Syrah northerners (evolution) leave me wary about aging.
External Reviews for Domaine Yves Cuilleron St. Péray Les Potiers
The Cuilleron family domaine, located in the town of Chavanay, was founded several generations ago. Yves Cuilleron's grandfather was the first to bottle wine for commercial purposes in 1947. Antoine Cuilleron, the uncle and immediate predecessor of Yves, significantly increased the percentage of wine bottled at the estate and extended the scope of the domaine. Yves assumed full ownership and direction in 1987 and, since that time, has built an entirely new facility while at the same time acquiring additional vineyard property. The domaine now produces about 50,000 bottles annually divided between the appellations of St. Joseph Blanc, St. Joseph Rouge, Cote Rotie and Condrieu.
