Domaine Pierre Usseglio et Fils
Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge ‘Réserve des 2 Frères’

The Domaine Pierre USSEGLIO is a family business, created in 1948 by Francis USSEGLIO from Italy and is one of the most well-regarded producers in Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

This first-class Domaine is now run by Pierre Usseglio’s sons Jean-Pierre and Thierry.

They own 39 hectares of vineyards, including 24 of Châteauneuf-du-Pape red, with some of the best locations in the region.

The excellent terroir, old vines and generations of craftmanship have resulted in wines of the highest quality.

Réserve des 2 Frères’ is a Cellar Selection.

The parcels are spread over the entire area of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation.

The various locations boast four different types of terroir which has great impact on the complexity in the wines. There are lime-rich, cool locations as well as dry, warm sandy soil.

24 hectares of Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge

The vines are between 35 and 75 years old.

Harvest is done by hand.

‘Réserve des 2 Frères’ is made with a selection of finished wines, a cellar selection.  Aged in barriques, one-third of which are new.

Ample, concentrated, this wine develops aromas of blackcurrant, blackberries, spices as well as smoky notes. The texture is smooth and the tannic structure requires a few years of ageing.

This wine is made for ageing, between 12 and 15 years.
