Notes from Shiverick Imports:

"Considered a micro-domaine, Yves’ wine is made with exceptional quality and in very limited production. Their cellar is located in the heart of Condrieu and their vines are located in Condrieu, Cote-Rotie, and St.-Joseph, all on steep hillsides. In the early summer, when vine shoots are growing fast and require tying up to the stakes, Yves works with about 30 people in the vineyards to complete the work, more people than he even uses for harvest. 

His meticulousness doesn’t end there; in the cellar, he destems some, but not all of the crop, depending on the vintage. He uses only wild yeasts and manipulates the wine as little as possible. He vinifies wines in partly new oak. Maturation is done in small oak barrels, with a proportion new. He does not rack and uses minimal amounts of sulphur. Although he uses some new oak, his wines are never ‘oaky.’ They contain personality and energy with classic Cote Rotie and Condrieu aromas.

The domaine now extends to the second generation, as Yves' daughter, Elsa, is coordinating the administrative side of the business."
