A whole different beast the 2010 Domaine Raymond Usseglio & Fils Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Part des Anges is a blend of 70% Mourvedre 20% Grenache and 10% Syrah that was aged 18 months in small barrels. Full throttle and pedal to the metal it oozes black and blue fruits graphite licorice crushed flowers saddle leather and hints of chocolate aromas and flavors. Full-bodied gorgeously proportioned and dare I say even elegant it has palate staining levels of fruit brilliantly polished tannin and blockbuster length. Given the overall size and slight modern profile it will not be for everyone; nevertheless it is a stunning Châteauneuf-du-Pape that will have 20-25 years of evolution.

The massive 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee La Parte des Anges reveals huge extraction abundant new oak and an intense full style. While there is a tendency to call this modern-styled the 70% Mourvedre component puts it in a different category than a traditional Chateauneuf du Pape. Wines such as the Perrins' Beaucastel Hommage a Jacques Perrin Manfred Krankl's and Philippe Cambie's Chimere and a few other offerings dominated by Mourvedre come to mind when tasting this cuvee. This 2010 needs to be forgotten for 5-8 years and drunk over the following 25-30 years. 92+

Usseglio, Domaine Raymond

The Raymond Usseglio domaine is one of the top-producing estates in Chateauneuf du Pape. The estate was originally created by Francis Usseglio who moved to the Rhone from Italy in 1931 and started producing his own wine in 1948. He was succeeded in 1963 by his son Raymond Usseglio who enlarged the area, now bearing his own name, with the help of his mother Danielle.

In 1999, Raymond’s son Stephane took over the domaine and is in now in charge of its operations, cultivating 60 acres, 40 of which are in Chateauneuf du Pape, 12 in Cotes du Rhone, and 7 classified as IGP. The estate practices sustainable and biodynamic farming techniques.
