  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    ($42) Medium red. Rich, smoky and superripe, with aromas of dark cherry, plum jam and prune. Thick and rich, with dark berry and roasted cherry flavors a bit subdued today. Finishes with powerful tannic structure, power and grip.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

    Ready to go, with outstanding black cherry and currant fruit harnessed by tar, garrigue and mineral notes. Chunky finish opens to reveal its flesh. Textbook vintage and appellation profile. 4,000 cases made.

    The outstanding 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition is a full-bodied, peppery wine that oozes the character of Provence with its notes of lavender, herbes de Provence, and sweet black cherries and raspberries. Some licorice, saddle leather, and salty sea breeze notes also make it into the character of this full-bodied, concentrated wine which is silky enough to be drunk now or cellared for 10-12 years.

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.
