    ($79; 16% alcohol; this is the successor to the Cuvee du Cinquantenaire, which was made only in 1999; from a selection of the estate's oldest grenache parcels; aged partly in one-, two- and three-year-old barriques and partly in cuve) Bright ruby-red. Knockout sappy aromas of cassis, black cherry, raspberry, violet, smoke, truffle and dark chocolate, with a freshening note of oak spice; has a roasted ripeness but comes across as more vibrant than the Mon Aieul. Huge, lush and thick but almost magically bright, with liqueur-like flavors of dark fruits and game. A wonderfully rich, sappy Chateauneuf with great lift, grip and length. The huge but smooth tannins coat the entire palate.

    The 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve des Deux Freres, which has been one of the winners in several blind tastings, is a candidate for |wine of the vintage.| Sadly, there are only 5,000 bottles. The wine emerges from the estate's oldest vines, and is aged in old barrels. This blend of 95% Grenache and 5% Cinsault tips the scales at a whopping 15.8% alcohol. Its inky purple color is accompanied by succulent aromas of blackberry, cherry, and raspberry liqueur interwoven with licorice, mineral, and acacia flower characteristics. Fabulously concentrated and full-bodied, with a voluptuous texture, sweet tannin, and a flamboyant and accessible personality, this prodigious, majestic Chateauneuf du Pape needs to be tasted to be believed.

    Extremely nice but not extraordinary. Tanins need time to soften. A bit of a disappointment but only because my expectations were so high.

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.
