Domaine Raymond Usseglio & Fils Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Girard 2011
A ripe, fleshy style, with plum sauce, blackberry paste and raspberry ganache notes that stay driven and fresh, thanks to a racy graphite spine and a lingering black licorice accent. Very solid. Drink now through 2021.Add winemaker's notes
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

A custom importer blend and a wine I normally find to be very close in quality to the traditional cuvee, the 2011 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Girard is a step up in this vintage. Comprised of 85% Grenache, 5% Mourvedre and the balance an assortment of varieties, it exhibits an inky purple color to go with rocking aromas and flavors of blackberries, currants, toasted spice, graphite and licorice. Aged all in concrete (Mourvedre in barrel), this medium to full-bodied 2011 has surprising depth and richness, with loads of fruit, excellent mid-palate depth and sweet tannin that reins in the finish nicely. It will hit prime time in another year or three and drink nicely through 2021. Drink 2014–2021.
