The lightly colored 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc (70% Clairette, 25% Grenache Blanc, and 5% Bourboulenc) was brought up in a mix of barrel and stainless steel. Crushed citrus, white flowers, salty minerality, and hints of white peach all emerge from this crisp, clean, concentrated white that has medium body, bright acidity, and a clean, crisp finish.

Twenty percent barrel-fermentation adds just a touch of honeyed richness to the pineapple and tangerine flavors in this medium to full-bodied effort. It finishes long, silky and refreshing. - Joe Czerwinski

Wisps of honey and caramel lend softness to the midpalate and lead a long finish marked by a pleasant ring of bitters. Ready now but should improve through 2028. ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA

Pierre Usseglio

Domaine Pierre Usseglio was founded in Chateauneuf-du-Pape by Pierre’s father, Francis in 1948. Pierre eventually took the reigns and, since 1999, his children have run the estate. The Domaine holds 15 small vineyard plots throughout the AOC, totaling 22 hectares. Only one of those hectares is planted to white grapes. The remainder, with a mix of rocky and sandy soils, represent approximately 75% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 6% Mourvedre, 5% Cinsault, 2% Counoise and 2% Muscardin. Domaine Pierre Usseglio makes three red wines and one white.
