2012 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Tradition, Domaine Pierre Usseglio
This shows a beautiful red fruit core and an almost liqueur-like richness. On the palate it is beautifully fresh, with an excellent weight on the juicy mid-palate, and a hint of garrigue herbs to lift the aromatics; the balance and poise are excellent. The crop is completely destemmed and the wine is aged in foudres for 18-24 months making for a classy Châteauneuf.
