Grandfather Francis Usseglio came from Italy in 1931 where he settled in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. He produced his first wine in 1949. Now third-generation Stéphane Usseglio, has taken over the domaine in the last few years and he is pushing to reach the potential of the family’s holdings, some of he best of Châteauneuf-du-pape. The estate is located in a very stony part of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape area, on the Lieux-Dits La Crau, Les Relangres and Colombis. 50 acres - 45 years old vines Rolled pebbles (limestone).
A part of the grapes comes from the sorting done on the grapes certified organic and biodynamic from our diverse classified vineyards. The rest comes from plots located out of AOP on the right bank of the Rhône River.

Tasting notes
Wine with a fairly deep gold color with a rich, shiny and crystalline substance in the glass. Fine nose on a floral frame, hawthorn, with notes of mint, lemongrass, lemon balm and honey. On the fruit in the mouth with a substance with flavors of peach, apricot and citrus on the finish. No need to let it age because it is greedy and tasty today. Serve very chilled.
Food pairing
You can pair this wine with grilled fish, vegetables, pasta, or poultry with white sauce.

“The peach and citrus aromas of this ambitious Vin de France are ripe and enticing. Lovely balance of creaminess and lively acidity, with delicate saltiness at the very straight finish. Drink now.”
