Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée de mon Aïeul, Domaine Pierre Usseglio 2015
This beauty offers the fine, finesse-driven style of the vintage, yet has full-bodied depth and richness as well as sensational notes of framboise, crushed flowers, licorice, Christmas fruitcake and spice. It’s in the top handful of wines in the vintage and will benefit from short-term cellaring and have 20+ years of overall longevity.

We make a plot selection to develop this cuvée. Only the 75 to 90-year-old vines enter the final blend, they come from plots in La Crau, Bédines and Serres. We did not carry out destemming for this vintage and the vatting is followed by thermoregulation, it lasts 30 to 40 days.
The wines remain in concrete vats to obtain an expressive fruitiness.
BEST OF WINE:
The optimal time to drink them is between 10 and 15 years.
The “Cuvée de mon Aïeul” is a pure and concentrated wine. The nose is very complex with notes of raspberries, liquorice and spices. It is a powerful wine of great elegance.
