L'autre Rive
Usseglio - Lirac
70% Grenache - 20% Syrah - 10% Cinsault
Grandfather Francis Usseglio came from Italy in 1931 where he settled in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. He produced his first wine in 1949. In 1963, Raymond, the son and Danielle, his wife took over and created the Domaine Usseglio Raymond. It is essential for Stéphane Usseglio Estate to preserve and respect as much as possible the life and balance of the terroirs and their vines.
L’Autre Rive is the promise of a stroll through the garrigue where aromas and flavors that characterize the Lirac AOP with a Mediterranean climate are mixed up. The Lirac vineyard located on the right bank of the Rhône enjoys remarkable sunshine associated with the famous mistral, which is what makes its wines so unique.
Fermented and aged in concrete vats to preserve the purity of the fruit and the terroir.

"Complex nose of candied oranges, fresh red plums and cardamon. Bold, and well-structured but with a crisp acidity, this Lirac is only just beginning to open up. Long, emphatically dry finish with plenty of sandalwood and spice. Good ageing potential. A cuvee based on grenache with syrah and cinsault. Drink or hold.
