About The Wine
Cuilleron is a family-owned Northern Rhone estate that has been in production for three generations.
Current owner/proprietor Yves Cuilleron believes in a sustainable approach to farming and winemaking, leaning into traditional practices when crfting his cuveés from the top appelations in the north of the region.
The Les Chaillets is one of his finest white wines harvested from his best and oldest vines in the tiny appelation of Condrieu.
It shows great power and great control, with a huge volume of varietal fruit character (apricot, peach, honeysuckle) but with serious tension and drive from crisp acidity.
It's Viognier elevated to the highest level. Beautiful now but brilliant with more time in bottle.
