Domaine Raymond Usseglio, Chateauneuf-du-pape Cuvee Imperiale

Write a Review

Vintage: 2018

Varietals: Predominately Grenache

Farming: Organic/Biodynamic

Full-bodied and concentrated, it boasts massive flavors of raspberries and cherries, with just enough herbal intricacies woven into the fabric of the wine to impart a sense of lightness and freshness—it positively tingles on the long, long finish. Grown fruit at yields just half the maximum permitted by the appellation. From Demeter-certified biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

La Cuvée Imperiale is from our oldest vines, most of them 100 years old (planted in 1901-1902.) Extremely low yields (16-18 h/h) guarantee a wine that is dense and profound. The ancient Grenache vines bring to this cuvee their finesse and elegance.
