The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape checks in as mostly Grenache (there’s 10% Mourvèdre) raised in concrete tanks. This classic 2016 has abundant black raspberry and black cherry fruit, notes of garrigue, pepper, and spice, medium to full body, and a layered, balanced style on the palate. It’s another sensational classic cuvée from this vintage.

Dark, slightly tarry liquorice and stewed damsons on the nose. Full, generous and rich in fruit, it's well balanced with a wonderful sense of freshness. Good length too. This is very well judged and very well made... Dark, slightly tarry liquorice and stewed damsons on the nose. Full, generous and rich in fruit, it's well balanced with a wonderful sense of freshness. Good length too. This is very well judged and very well made; quintessential Châteauneuf.

Lacking the concentrated richness of the 2015, Usseglio's 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is nevertheless a solid effort, boasting a blend of cherry and cola notes that would make Dr. Pepper proud. Full-bodied and velvety, it picks up hints of licorice on the finish. - 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.
