It is known for its robust, full-bodied and richly textured wines made predominantly from Grenache. The company dates back to 1948 when Italian immigrant Francis Usseglio bought 8 hectares (20 acres) in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, with the first wine under his own label appearing a year later. His son Pierre later greatly extended the holdings, and today the domaine is managed by Pierre's sons Jean-Pierre and Thierry. The estate has around 26 hectares (64 acres) of Châteauneuf vineyards – including one hectare of Châteaneuf-du-Pape blanc (white) – spread over numerous different parcels in the La Crau, Serres and la Bedine subzones, with a large proportion of vines over 65 years old. Other vineyard holdings include six hectares in Lirac (red), six hectares of Côtes du Rhône and two hectares classified as Vin de France. Pierre Usseglio makes four red Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines. The generic wine, also referred to as the Cuvée Tradition, is made of 80 percent Grenache and aged in barrels and vats for 12 months. The Cuvée de Mon Aïeul is 100 percent Grenache from selected vineyard parcels, while the Réserve des 2 Frères is blended from different parcels of finished wines. In some years, neither of these wines are made. The rarest red is is the Not for You! cuvée, another varietal Grenache made in the very best years from vines no younger than 95 years old. A single barrel is selected after tastings and aged for 36 months, making just 300 bottles of wine. There have been several one-off releases over the years. Usseglio also makes a white Châteauneuf-du-Pape (also known as Cuvée Tradition blanc) from 60 percent Clairette, 35 percent Grenache Blanc and 5 percent Bourboulenc. The portfolio is completed by a Côtes du Rhône, a Lirac rouge, and Unique (previously labeled Panorama), a Vin de France.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-04-03T17:30:01-04:00","created_at":"2023-03-27T15:41:33-04:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_France","Nina2703","other_french wine","Other_Wine","Producer_Domaine Pierre Usseglio \u0026 Fils","Region_Rhone","Source_Hedonism0323","Type_Red Wine","varietal_Grenache"],"price":59899,"price_min":59899,"price_max":59899,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42871651795082,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2007 | Domaine Pierre Usseglio \u0026 Fils | Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Mon Aieul","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":59899,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/52_65088ff4-0df4-4486-b5ee-6e216fe1be7a.jpg?v=1679946152"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/52_65088ff4-0df4-4486-b5ee-6e216fe1be7a.jpg?v=1679946152","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2007 | Pierre Usseglio | Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Mon Aieul at CaskCartel.com","id":24478821843082,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.6,"height":1000,"width":600,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/52_65088ff4-0df4-4486-b5ee-6e216fe1be7a.jpg?v=1679946152"},"aspect_ratio":0.6,"height":1000,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/52_65088ff4-0df4-4486-b5ee-6e216fe1be7a.jpg?v=1679946152","width":600}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 2007 | Pierre Usseglio | Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Mon Aieul\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eVivid ruby.
