2018 Domaine Pierre Usseglio Chateauneuf-du-Pape
Winemaker Notes: Our Tradition has aromas of red fruits and black fruits; blackberry and blueberry, as well as hints of spice. It is a concentrated and structured wine, it is a wine to keep. We recommend tasting it in 6-8 years.
The wines are aged in oak barrels, in half barrels, in concrete vats and barrels over a period of 12 months. Our red Châteauneuf-du-Pape is made in the traditional way. The vines are between 35 and 75 years old. The grapes harvested manually are 60% destemmed. The fermentation is followed by thermoregulation, it lasts from 25 to 35 days.
Blend: 55% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault
Madeline Triffon, MS Selection: "A very pretty, feminine style, medium-bodied with a lovely aroma of dried flowers, and black licorice flavor."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Hints of cinnamon and clove accent dark, plummy fruit on the nose of the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape. 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."
