90-92 points "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape (80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre and 5% Cinsault) is another top-notch effort. The wine is aged in tank (60%), foudre (30%) and 1- to 4-year-old small barrels (10%). Sweet raspberry, black currant, and cherry fruit intermixed with licorice, lavender and tobacco leaf jump from the glass of this perfumed 2009. With outstanding ripeness, a plush, evolved mouthfeel and sweet tannins, this beauty is already complex and delicious. It should age well for 7-8 years." Wine Advocate, #191 Oct 2010, Robert Parker 89-91 points "Ruby-red. Subdued aromas of blackberry, cherry and licorice accented by white pepper. Sweet and round on entry, displaying dark fruit flavors given definition by firm acidity and complicated by slowly emerging suggestions of bitter cherry and candied anise. The firmly tannic finish features enticing floral lift and echoes the licorice note. Showing a serious side right now." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Mar/Apr 11)

This estate looks to have excelled in '09 and sample after sample showed incredibly pure, rich fruit, amazing texture and solid freshness. The base 2009 Domaine Pierre Usseglio & Fils Châteauneuf-du-Pape showed perfumed, sweet aromatics of kirsch, in... Rhone Report, The. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2009 Pierre Usseglio Chateauneuf du Pape 750ml
