  • What the experts say...

    "it boasts a dense plum/purple color followed by a glorious bouquet of black cherries, blackberries, truffles, lavender, licorice, and spring flowers. The color is one of the darkest of the vintage, and the wine is extremely full-bodied and rich with intense levels of extract and tannin, but the latter is gorgeously sweet and well-integrated."

    Cuvée presentation

    The Mon Aïeul cuvée is the result of a careful selection of parcels from the domain's oldest wines (up to 90 years). Vinification is conducted in whole bunches, and élevage takes place in vats to preserve an expressive fruitiness. The nose is distinguished by its complexity and offers notes of raspberry, licorice and spice. The palate is powerful and expressive, although it will take a few years for the tannins to become more supple.

    Information about domain Usseglio

    Domaine Usseglio is, first and foremost, the story of a family. In 1948 Francis Usseglio, an Italian labourer, came to Châteauneuf-du-Pape to work in the vineyards. His passion for wine and motivation led him to take on a few hectares of vines on a sharecropping basis known as métayage. His son Raymond took over from him, continuing the tradition but adding a modern touch by converting the vineyards to biodynamic. Today, the 24-hectare Domaine Usseglio is run by Francis’ grandchildren, Jean-Pierre, Thierry and Stéphane and is one of the appellation’s leading lights. Its grape varieties are typical for Châteauneuf with Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault for red wine and Bourboulenc, Clairette and Grenache for white. The vines are between 30 and 60 years old and harvesting is carried out manually. The resulting wines have plenty of character, combining power with a hint of rustic simplicity.
