2007 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée de Mon Aïeul, Pierre Usseglio
One of the great wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape on account of its almost Burgundian refinement. The fragrant, spiced loganberry nature of Usseglio's wines is typified here with fabulous purity. The palate is a true tour-de-force. To gain this sense of volume and intensity without creating a weighty, heavy style, illustrates Thierry's ability to blend from the finest terroirs of the appellation, as well as his approach to extraction, bringing the best the fruit can offer to the fore. Juicy, succulent, cool, ripe, garrigue-infused, with stunning minerality and purity as well as the silkiest of tannins, this really is an exceptional Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
