User Reviews for Chateauneuf du Pape Pierre Usseglio 93 Rr

Winemaker's Notes:

"There is no mon Aïeul or reserve bottling in 08 with everything going into the base Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The wine is a blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre, and 5% Cinsault that was aged 50% in cement, 30% in foudre and the rest in barrel. Sporting fantastic aromatics of kirsch, framboise, garrigue, incense, toasted bread, and a touch of roasted meat, this definitely breaks the mold of the vintage and shows fantastic ripeness and an open, lush personality. Medium to full bodied with a superb texture, clean, ripe fruit, and perfect balance, this is as good as the 07 and should drink well for just as long. Outstanding and this is a backup the truck purchase! Tasted twice...93" Rhone Report 08/10
