Yves Cuilleron Saint-Péray - Les Potiers

Cuilleron Saint Peray “Les Potiers”


  • The grapes for Yves Cuilleron Saint-Péray “Les Potiers” are taken from several parcels of pebble-rich alluvium soils on gentle, southwest-facing slopes in the commune of Saint-Peray.

Varietal Composition: 50% Marsanne, 50% Roussanne

Elaboration: The wine is fermented spontaneously using native yeasts. Malolactic fermentation is done in barrels and big casks that are temperature controlled. The wine spends an additional nine months on the lees (no battonage and no racking) in barrel and large casks before bottling.

Tasting Notes: “Les Potiers” has a delicate, subtle aroma of fresh fruits: peach, Mirabelle, citrus, and lemon rind, along with a strong flint note. A well balanced palate with lovely tension due to the appellation’s mineral soil.
