The Mourvèdre dominated 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Part des Anges (70% Mourvèdre, 20% Grenache and 10% Syrah aged mostly in new barrels) is also deep ruby/purple in color.

The Mourvèdre dominated 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Part des Anges (70% Mourvèdre, 20% Grenache and 10% Syrah aged mostly in new barrels) is also deep ruby/purple in color. It offers a modern style in its blackberry, toasty oak, espresso and licorice-driven aromatics. Rich, full-bodied, concentrated and structured, with ripe, present tannin, it's another impressive effort from an estate that's unquestionably on the upswing.

As the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee la Parte des Anges contains so much Mourvèdre (70%) and new oak (80%), I suggest cellaring this a few years before getting into it. Right now, the toasty oak is a bit too prominent... As the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee la Parte des Anges contains so much Mourvèdre (70%) and new oak (80%), I suggest cellaring this a few years before getting into it. Right now, the toasty oak is a bit too prominent. Still, between the ripe fruit and lashings of vanilla, what's not to like?—unless you're a dogmatic traditionalist or hung up on terroir and transparency. Yes, this is modern and maybe a bit international in style, but it tastes freakin' good. - Joe Czerwinski

Domaine Raymond Usseglio

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.
