Review

Late ripening and capricious, Mourvedre is certainly one of the most exacting varietals grown in the South of France, especially when it is situated, as here, at the northern limit of its growing region. This cuvee benefits from a rather unique elevage in order to complement the powerful tannins of the varietal.

When the wine is put in barrel for the elevage, and part of its volume evaporates, they call it La Part des Anges (The Angels' Share). La Part des Anges is a unique cuvee for a Chateauneuf-du-Pape because the Mourvedre dominates the blend at 70%, complemented by 20% Grenache and a little Syrah (10%). Count on carafing if you wish to drink this cuvee before its first 2-3 years of laying down. Because it is bottled without any filtration, some sediment — natural and beneficial to the aging process — is possible.

Wine from Domaine Raymond Usseglio & Fils

Domaine Raymond Usseglio & Fils

With 24 hectares of vineyards, Domaine Raymond Usseglio & Fils is one of the top wineries among the Châteauneuf-du-Pape crus. The winery was founded by Francis Usseglio, an Italian who set up his own winemaking production here, probably inspired by wine traditions from his home country. It was not until 1963 that Francis' son, Raymond Usseglio started to produce wines under the winery's present name. Decades later, run now by Raymond and his son, Stephane, their wines have be...
