Saint-Joseph Rouge “Cavanos” – Vieilles Vignes”: 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. 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.
