Cuilleron produces scant quantities of a sweet Condrieu from very-late-harvested, botrytised Viognier around the village of Chavanay. Yves contends that, historically, late-harvested grapes blessed by the noble rot were the original and classic version of Condrieu so he has labored annually, when conditions merit, to produce this unique gem. Aged entirely in small barrels, this fascinating wine clocks in at 11.5% alcohol and carries 110 grams per liter of residual sugar, yet its vibrant acidity keeps the ripeness in check. “Ayguets” blitzes the senses aromatically, with peach, warm stones, fresh-ground cinnamon, porcini, and a savory edge.
