  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95

    ($115; 100% grenache) Inky ruby. Extremely powerful, compellingly complex bouquet of dark berry liqueur, kirsch, lavender perfume, black olive, pipe tobacco and cured meat. Completely saturates the palate with deep, sweet black and blue fruit flavors along with notes of cola, olive and succulent herbs. Almost too big for the mouth, and yet there's no excess fat, rough edges or heaviness. In fact, this is graceful. Finishes with remarkable clarity, breadth and persistence.

    A candidate for the wine of the vintage, and one of the few wines to hit this level of quality in the vintage, the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve des Deux Freres is a selection of 100% Grenache that was raised 60% in demi-muids and 40% in two- to three-year-old barrels. Possessing a slightly darker color than the Mon Aieul and a bigger, richer wine, it offers incredible notes of cassis, black currants, smoked herbs and leather in a full-bodied, voluptuous, ripe yet seamless package. It will hold for a decade, yet it's a thrill ride today.

    Not shy with its prominent mocha and coffee aromatics, this is dark and rich, with warm fig sauce, bittersweet cocoa, mesquite and crushed blackberry fruit flavors that pump through the muscular finish, where grip clamps down a bit. More power than guile.

  • 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.
