Why do we love this wine?

When you talk numbers regarding Domaine Raymond Usseglio, they’re usually very small. Like his Roussanne, with production running to just 90 cases, when he chooses to make it. His ‘La Part des Anges’ tops out at 200 cases. And there isn’t much to go around of this stunning ‘Les Apotres’ - just 250 cases produced. But we’ve managed to get our hands on some! Perhaps where the numbers get bigger is the number of varieties in this blend - 13 - including some funky whites - which explains its lifted perfume and ethereal palate. Some even compare it to Burgundy...

Don’t be mistaken though - this is 100% pure Chateauneuf-du-pape - just one that chooses to walk to the beat of its own drum - like its fermentation in amphora with an additional four months on skins. At 15%, it’s certainly no shrinking violet. The nose really takes you in - those white varieties refuse to be swamped by their red siblings. There’s an immediate whack of summer grass and spring flowers before you get more typical pepper and spice. There’s a line of intertwined red-scented fruits and minerality before the bass kicks in with blackberries and briar.

The palate walks the line like a weightlifter in ballet shoes. There’s  a lightness of foot here - despite its apparent weight. Grenache (38%) provides the foundation with red berry fruit, earth and charcuterie. Ripe blackcurrants extend to a lengthy finish, with supportive tannins and fresh acidity. Encore!
