About

91

"Bright and juicy, with a brambly frame around a core of energetic cherry and raspberry fruit. Tobacco, licorice root and singed alder notes hang in the background for now but should meld with the core over time. Solid. Best from 2015 through 2025. 3,000 cases made."

"Domaine Pierre Usseglio and Son is a family business. It began operation in 1948 but soon 1931, the grandfather, Francis Usseglio, left Italy to come to work at Chateauneuf-du-Pape wine as a laborer. In November 1948, he had the opportunity to use 8 acres of vineyard sharecropping. He then began to develop its own wine. His very first crop out of the press in 1949. Later, his son Pierre takes the succession and increases the area of ​​the field. Today it stretches over 24 hectares, divided into 17 plots that are exploited by two sons: Jean-Pierre and Thierry Usseglio." -Winery
