Tasting Notes:
Astonishingly intensely flavoured wine but, true to form, it retains Stef Usseglio's hallmark elegance. The Mourvedre-based fruit is, inevitably, very black in both colour and character and, of course, very tannic but still manageable even now. It will benefit from 5-15 years ageing though. And, because it is deemed atypical by Robert Parker, the price is, for once, heading in the right direction.
Drinking Dates:
2015 to 2025+
Cépagement:
70% Mourvedre, 20% Grenache, 10% Syrah
Critic Reviews:
"Everything is there in the 2010 even though it is atypical for the appellation. However, I don't think the tannins will ever become an issue if consumers are willing to wait the requisite 8-10 years these wines need" 93+/100 (Wine Advocate)
Food:
