3 Liters

HK$5,950.00

Tasting Notes:

Next to the traditional cuvée, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul is even riper and more concentrated, but that's not always a good thing. This all-Grenache cuvée offers fudge-like density and rich tannins but also cooked, dead-fruit flavors and bright acidity on the finish.

Tasting Notes:

A bolder, more concentrated and compressed expression with darker plum and cherry fruits on the nose and palate. The power and concentration here is impressive. Gently chocolate-flavored at the finish. Terrific wine. Drink now.

Tasting Notes:

The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée de Mon Aïeul is another gorgeous wine from this family estate. As always it comes from three Grenache parcels: la Serres, La Crau and La Guigasse (there are 2 hectares in each parcel). In both 2015 and 2016 this cuvée wasn’t destemmed and was brought up mostly in tank, with 15-20% in demi-muids. The 2016 spent a huge 45 days on skins before being pressed to barrel. This beauty offers the fine, finesse-driven style of the vintage, yet has full-bodied depth and richness as well as sensational notes of framboise, crushed flowers, licorice, Christmas fruitcake and spice. It’s in the top handful of wines in the vintage and will benefit from short-term cellaring and have 20+ years of overall longevity.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Domaine Pierre USSEGLIO and Son is a family farm. It dates back to 1948 but in 1931, the grandfather, Francis USSEGLIO, left Italy to come to work in CHÂTEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE as vineyard worker. In November 1948, he had the opportunity to use 8-hectare vineyard in sharecropping. He can then begin to develop its own wine. His first crop out of the press in 1949. Later, his son Pierre took over and increases the area of the field. Today it covers 24 hectares, divided into 17 plots which are operated by 2 Son Pierre Jean-Pierre and Thierry Usseglio.
