Champagne Paul Déthune, Ambonnay Grand Cru

Champagne Paul Déthune’s winery and vineyard are located in the village of Ambonnay en Champagne. This terroir bears the appellation of Grand Cru excellence (only 17 communes have this honour) and its reputation is based on a unique expression of Pinot Noir, pleasantly combined with Chardonnay, the white varietal of Champagne.

The Déthunes started as growers in the early 1800s and began to make their own Champagne in the 1930s. The vineyards are planted in the ratio of 70% Pinot Noir to 30% Chardonnay and are farmed on organic principles - and hold the highest level HEV (High Environmental Value) certificate for sustainable viticulture. The Champagnes are vinified in a mix of stainless steel cuves, foudres and 205 litre barrels, the oak all being sourced from local forests.

Their wines are deep, rich and full, but with lovely freshness and elegance. These are all very fine mouthfilling wines and as Michael Edwards says, "Pierre Déthune intelligently adopts tradition to craft wines of exuberance and vinosity."

Cave Yves Cuilleron, Verlieu, Chavanay

The Cuilleron family Domaine, located in the hamlet of Verlieu was founded in 1920. Yves Cuilleron’s grandfather was the first to bottle wine for commercial purposes in 1947. Yves assumed full ownership and direction of the domaine in 1987 and, since that time, has built an entirely new facility while at the same time acquiring additional vineyard property. The Domaine is now larger in scope that covers multiple appellations, including principally, Condrieu, Saint Joseph Rouge and Blanc, Cote Rotie, Saint Péray and a series of Vin de Pays.

Most of the vineyards are situated in and around the commune of Chavanay which is just south of the town of Condrieu; the holdings in Cote Rotie extend north into Ampuis and the holdings the furthest south are in the village of Saint Péray. A large majority of the vineyards are set on terraces which makes most mechanization difficult, if not impossible. Thus, much of the vineyard work continues to be done by hand. To control yields, Cuilleron does extensive debudding and, when necessary, practices a “green harvest.”
