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.

Critical Acclaim

"Composed of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre, the sexy, up-front 2007 Cotes du Rhone exhibits gorgeous levels of kirsch liqueur, pepper, spice box, and spring flowers. Medium to full-bodied and silky smooth, it is ideal for drinking over the next 3-4years.

What a superlative performance from proprietors Jean-Pierre and Thierry Usseglio. This is one of the few estates where the 2006s are so great that they eclipse their brilliant 2005s, and come very close to what was accomplished in 2007. 2007 is another stunning success from brothers Jean-Pierre and Thierry Usseglio.
