Description

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.

Grape

55% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault

Vineyard & Vinification Note

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.

This red Châteauneuf-du-Pape is made in the traditional way. The grapes harvested manually, are destemmed at 60%. Fermentation is followed by thermoregulation, it lasts from 25 to 35 days.

The wines are aged in oak barrels, in 1/2 muids, in concrete vats and barrels over a period of 12 months.

Wine Spectator

This is lovely right from the start, offering a velvety wave of raspberry compote that’s followed by alluring fruitcake, incense, black tea and warned anise notes. Black cherry and dark plum paste notes line the finish, playing a supporting role to the raspberry component. With mouthfeel, length and fruit to burn, what’s not to like? Best from 2023 through 2036. 2,500 cases made, 1,000 cases imported. 94 Points, James Molesworth, June 2021

Jeb Dunnuck

The classic 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape comes from tiny, tiny yields. It’s a beautiful, layered wine that delivers the goods, offering loads of black raspberry fruit, notes of spice, garrigue, licorice, and pepper, medium to full body, good acidity, and a great finish. Beautifully balanced, it can be drunk today with incredible pleasure or cellared for 15 years or more. 93 Points, August 2019

James Suckling

Impressive, rich red and dark fruit aromas and flavors here with a very balanced, fleshy palate that is bathed in ripe-plum and summer-berry flavors. Drink or hold. 92 Points, October 2019

Wine Advocate

From yields that averaged just 17 hectoliters per hectare (half the appellation’s maximum), the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape contains less Grenache than usual in the blend, being composed of 55% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault. Cola and chocolate notes dominate this full-bodied, silky-textured wine, adding hints of dried spices and licorice on the finish. 91 Points, August 2019

Food Pairing

A great pairing to charcuterie, red meat, game, a mushroom fricassee and cheeses.
