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.

2012 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Tradition, Domaine Pierre Usseglio
Domaine Pierre Usseglio

This well-regarded estate is run by brothers Thierry and Jean-Pierre Usseglio, who divide their time between cellar and vineyard. Having taken over the domaine from their father, Pierre, in 1998, these hardworking brothers have gradually modernised the cellars. They’ve sought to improve quality without compromising the traditional style espoused by their father. Usseglio wines are complex, profound and aromatic wines; they’ve rightly acquired world-wide recognition and acclaim.
