Tasting Notes:

Similar in style to the 2006, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul is rounded and textured, with tons of charm in its blackberry, black raspberry, violets, garrigue and spice aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, supple and textured, it shows the vintage's upfront and forward character, yet has beautiful purity of fruit and enough density to drink nicely through 2027. Most 2012s are already showing nicely, and this is no exception.

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.
