About this Item

Châteauneuf-du-Pape, 2007
3 (1 x 3) 750ml
Domaine Pierre Usseglio was created by Francis Usseglio in 1948 when he left Italy for Châteauneuf-du-Pape. His first vintage was created a year later. When Francis’s son, Pierre, took over, he expanded the vineyards greatly, and today, the area consists of 39 hectares. Half of their vines are over 65 years old, with the other half in their forties. The family business is now managed by Pierre's sons Jean-Pierre and Thierry.

Critics Ratings

‘A blend of 80% Grenache and the rest Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Cinsault, the 2007 Châteauneuf-du-Pape boasts a dense plum/purple color as well as a wonderfully sweet nose of fresh black truffles, incense, blue and black fruits, roasted herbs, and earth. The wine is full-bodied and pure with fresh acids, silky tannins, and a voluptuous mouthfeel.’ - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, 93/100 (Oct 2009)

‘Bright ruby. Highly floral bouquet of red and dark berry preserves, potpourri, smoky minerals and white pepper. Tangy red berry flavors give way to deeper cherry and blackberry in the middle palate, with exotic floral pastille and Asian spice qualities adding complexity. Very suave wine with a seamless, silky texture and strong finishing sweetness, not to mention impressive clarity.’ - Josh Raynolds, Vinous, 92/100 (Jan 2010)
