Yves Cuilleron 'Cavanos' Vieilles Vignes Saint Joseph 2015

As of 2015, Cuilleron will no longer produce his well-loved “L’Amarybelle.” His oldest Syrah vineyards instead are being used for this cuvee, “Cavanos”—the ancient local name for the village of Chavanay.

Tech + Tasting Notes

Made from densely planted Syrah over 40 years of age, “Cavanos” offers a profound, more overtly smoky character than “Pierres Seches” above, trading a bit of that wine’s straightforward snappiness for a broader palate of greater opacity and thickness. After a manual harvest, the grapes are destemmed and undergo a three week cuvaison in open top vats. The wine is moved into smaller barrel for the malolactic and are left to age for 18 months before bottling.
