Domaine Pierre Usseglio & Fils Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2001

$44.95

The brilliant 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape should not be overlooked... A peppery, leathery, earthy effort with copious quantities of black cherries, this dense, full-bodied 2001 is surprisingly precocious by Usseglio's standards. Nevertheless, 1-2 years of cellaring is warranted given the size and structure of this big, chewy, 75% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre, 10% Cinsault, and 5% Syrah blend. It was aged in neutral wood foudres for 15-18 months. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2014. Robert Parker

Mature, but initially some odd chemical aromas that detract, but also some pleasant leathery aromas and flavors, medium-long finish, solid, but time to drink up, good.
