As one of the leading estates in all of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Pierre Usseglio is known for their full-bodied Grenache wines. The Domaine dates back to 1948 when Italian immigrant Francis Usseglio bought twenty acres in Southern Rhône and began producing his own wine just one year later. With the help of Francis’ son, Pierre, and grandsons, Jean-Pierre and Thierry, the estate was able to extend its holdings and become the quintessential example of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
Today, the esteemed producer owns 54 acres spread over different well-established vineyards, and many of them are home to 80+-year-old vines. Pierre Usseglio only makes a total of four red wines that are predominately composed of Grenache, and one white wine made of mostly Clairette. Regardless of which bottle, the wines are elegant and spicy and show the true personality of a star from the southern Rhône.
