  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 84

    A dark-colored red, extracted for maximum show, with an exotic floral, cassis and blackberry character, but little charm. Tastes hard and slightly hot, with drying tannins on the finish. 2,915 cases made.

  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    Good bright deep red. Deep aromas of roasted red fruits and underbrush. Large-scaled, rich and rather unrefined, with notes of cherry, leather, smoke and earth. Huge, mouthcoating, rather rustic finish. Not showing quite the verve it displayed from barrel a year ago but undeniably massive.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

    The 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape exhibits a roasted herb, concentrated style with notes of scorched earth, licorice, cherry liqueur, and pepper. Full-bodied and intense, it is representative of a traditional Chateauneuf du Pape made from primarily Grenache.

  • Pierre Usseglio et Fils has been a family-run domaine since Francis Usseglio released his first vintage in 1949. Today, with brothers Jean-Pierre and Thierry Usseglio at the helm, Pierre and Fils has become one of the top producers in Chateauneuf-du-Pape.

    The vineyards comprise 17 parcels over 23 hectares on some of the best terroir in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The wine is vinified traditionally using natural yeasts, low doses of sulfur, and is aged mostly in old oak foudres. The results are world class wines that are testament to Chateauneuf-du-Pape as one of the world's most famous terroirs.
