Usseglio Cotes du Ventoux 2017
Francis Usseglio moved to the Rhone from Italy in 1931, but it was only in 1948 that he was able to open his own winery. Francis had two sons, Pierre, who took over the family estate, and Raymond, who created his own winery in 1964. Over the last few years, Raymonds son Stephan has taken over his domaine, and it is he whom we have to thank for this delicious little Ventoux from the region right next door to Chateauneuf. A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignan, all grown biodynamically, the wine has aromas and flavors of ripe red cherries with a little smoke and licorice, and the win has a perfect balance of weight, acidity, alcohol, sweetness, and juicy fruit.
