Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

High-toned, with cherry and red currant fruit laced with shiso leaf, mineral, sandalwood and spice notes. The finish is supple but persistent.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape a blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and the rest Mourvedre and Cinsault, aged in tank (20%) and old wood foudres (80%), reveals classic Provencal typicity with its notes of sweet black cherries, lavender, licorice, roasted herbs, and meat. Soft and lush with a luxurious mouthfeel as well as a stunningly silky texture, this beauty can be enjoyed over the next 10-12 years.

($49) Bright red. Suave, precise red berry and cherry aromas are complemented by dried flowers, herbs and minerals. Fat and gently sweet, with vivid red fruit flavors and easygoing tannins. Very pretty and easy to drink, with excellent finishing lift and persistence.

Site Blog: Unidentified Appellation The base cuvee of Usseglio offers up a pleasant and unique saline minerality note in the nose that I did not detect in any other ?06, alongside a rock solid palate of black cherries, underbrush and mouth watering acidity. The freshness and perfume reminds me of ?04 immediately, and the fine length suggests some positive evolution ahead

Raspberry bubble gum, kirsch, spice, and briar, with good tannic structure and medium glycerin. Come back to it in a few years. Lots of hair on the teeth now.

About This Producer

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.

Wine Varietal: Rhone Blend

"Rhone blends" are typically red wines comprised of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre in varying proportions. However, the red blends may also include any of the traditional varieties grown in the Rhone Valley such as the 14 allowed in the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation. There are also Rhone blend roses which use the same varieties as their red counterparts. White Rhone blends are typically some combination of Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier, Grenache blanc, and lesser varieties.
