Tasting Notes:

Moving to the Châteauneufs, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape includes slightly more Mourvèdre than normal and was brought up mostly in tank, with smaller amounts in demi-muids, barrels, and foudre. Blackberries, incense, licorice and beautifully complex spice characteristics flow to a full-bodied, opulent 2016 that ticks all the right boxes. With sweet tannin and beautiful purity, drink it over the coming 10-15 years.

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.
