Roussanne Vin de Pays des Collines Rhodaniennes Domaine Cuilleron Bottle 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review:<br/>Yves Cuilleron, has long been seen as the leader of Condrieus new generation of winemakers, so long in fact that the word 'new' is probably somewhat redundant in this description. Be that as it may, he is still a leading light, although, warming to the theme, it seems that the enfant terrible has now grown up. <br/> <br/>This is evidenced by less use of new oak and an even more precise delineation of the terroir of his ever-increasing vineyard holdings. Although based at Chavanay, in the south of Condrieu, his vines cover impressive plots in not only Condrieu, but also Côte Rôtie and St Joseph. It is from just outside the delimited area of St Joseph, indeed, just to the south of Chavanay and therefore of Condrieu itself, that this excellent Roussanne has been cultivated. <br/> <br/>The grapes have been grown organically on poor granitic soils, then fermented in
