Domaine Raymond Usseglio Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2019
- Textured, savoury
Wine writer Jeb Dunnuck calls Domaine Raymond Usseglio the “next superstar estate in Châteauneuf du Pape”. This is the fourth vintage of Raymond’s CNP that we’ve sold and can say that it’s a rock solid mofo fave. Francophiles love this wine and with bold fruit, big tannin and a full-bodied profile, many a South Aussie big red drinker are getting on board too.
The 2019 has everything you could want from the famous wine - layers of brooding dark fruit, herbaceous complexity and tannin that is going to help in ageing for a decade or more. See more about what to expect in Jeb Dunnuck’s review below. We can confidently advise that this wine will not stick around long, so, if Chateauneuf-du-Pape is your jam, and you have a bit of room in your cellar - press that button!
“The 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape looks terrific and will be a solid buy. Lots of darker raspberry and currant fruits, notes of peppery herbs and violets, medium to full body, ripe tannins, beautiful purity of fruit, and a great finish all make for a stunning classic cuvée that will drink nicely for 15 years or more.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

My sister Nicci calls these "puddingstone wines", because the vines are literally grown on soils lightly covering giant boulders roughly translated as "pudding stones". Châteauneuf-du-Pape has a rich history, and the reds (usually grenache-predominant) can be a blend of up to 13 grape varieties, including some cheeky whites to round out the mix. The resultant wines are complex, brooding but usually not giant, and delicious. Especially if you call them puddingstone wines.
