STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Yves Cuilleron has been credited with raising the quality, profile and fortunes of Northern Rhône wines since he took over his Uncles small estate in his mid-twenties. His wines are remarkable and worth seeking out. This wine is from a selection of vines on the hillsides of the north of Saint Joseph. Assemblage of the plots best expressing fruit and freshness. “Les Pierres Sèches” is not a district, it refers to the dry stone walls used to strengthen the vine terracing.
