2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée de Mon Aïeul, Pierre Usseglio

Yields are low here, just 30 hectolitres from 6 hectares, vinified in demi-muids. 103 year old vines are the oldest, and then 80-85 year old. Really intense, but there’s nice crunchy fruit, strawberries, and good depth. Fine and juicy, with silky tannins and salinity.

2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée de Mon Aïeul, 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.
