It’s certainly worthy of a case purchase and has a gorgeous perfume of kirsch and blackberry fruits as well as loads of spiced meat, charcuteries, flowers, and garrigue. Medium to full-bodied, round, and elegant on the palate, it has the more front end-loaded style of the vintage, sweet tannins, and a great finish. It’s going to drink well for at least 10-12 years.

Vivid ruby-red. Spice-accented red and blue fruits and candied flowers on the expressive nose. Juicy, open-knit raspberry and boysenberry flavors become livelier as the wine opens up. Shows very good clarity and lift on...   Vivid ruby-red. Spice-accented red and blue fruits and candied flowers on the expressive nose. Juicy, open-knit raspberry and boysenberry flavors become livelier as the wine opens up. Shows very good clarity and lift on the long, smooth finish, which features supple tannins and resonating red fruit character. -- Josh Raynolds

Showing the domaine's characteristic ripeness and opulence, it's plush and broad in the mouth, even a bit creamy textured, then finishes on notes of Mexican chocolate. Produced from tiny yields of approximately 15 hectoliters per hectare, it should drink well for at least a decade.- JC

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.
