Better, the 2016 Côtes du Rhône Les Claux is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre and offers a textbook Southern Rhône perfume of peppery garrigue, spice, and assorted red and black fruits. It’s medium-bodied, silky, and incredibly elegant on the palate and should be a terrific value.

The rich, concentrated 2016 Cotes du Rhone les Claux is an equal-parts blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah from a lieu-dit just next to Lirac, on the western side of the Rhône. Dark cherry fruit dominates this full-bodied red, but it picks up notes of lavender, thyme and anise on the plush, velvety-textured 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.
