Winemaker's Notes:

Dark purple in the glass, with a spicy nose full of blackberry, fresh flowers and savory aromatics of fresh herbs thrown on the grill. Black fruits persist on the layered palate along with lavender, olives and licorice. Think of this as a mini-Chateauneuf-du-Pape, not a Cotes-du-Rhone. Medium to full-bodied, with bright acidity keeping it fresh.

About Domaine Pierre Usseglio et Fils:

In 1931 an Italian Francis Usseglio left Italy and went to Chateauneuf du Pape in France. Here he got a job at some winegrowers. After the war he got his own property - in 1948. He had two sons Pierre and Raymond. Pierre Usseglio got his father's property and Raymond established another estate. Today the 3. generation is in charge. The sons of Pierre Usseglio, Jean-Pierre and Thierry run Domaine Pierre Usseglio and Stephanie runs Domaine Raymond Usseglio. Today Domaine Pierre Usseglio consists of 21 ha. divided in 15 different parcels in the appellation. Half of the vines are about 60 years old and the rest is about 30 years old.
