Domaine Pierre Usseglio Châteauneuf du Pape 2016
|Varietal(s)||Grenache Mourvèdre Shiraz/Syrah Cinsault|
|Brand||Domaine Pierre Usseglio|
The Wine Front – Red fruits, peanuts, and garrigue fragrance, with a certain stoniness. It’s medium bodied, but lush, with a silky and creamy texture, chocolate, a grilled meat and dried herb flavour and perfume, gentle grip from tannin, and a fresh finish of fine length. It’s a beautiful wine, a little robust and hedonistic, but not without balance and grace.
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – 'The 2016 Châteauneuf du Pape is mostly Grenache blended with 10% Syrah and 5% each of Mourvèdre and Cinsault. It’s mostly (not completely) destemmed and aged 80% in concrete and 20% in older barrels. It’s a terrific, full-bodied beauty that has ripe, sweet tannin, a great mid-palate and hedonistic notes of roasted herbs, black raspberries, chocolate and incense. It’s a no-brainer case purchase.'
