Stepháne Usseglio’s grandfather, an Italian immigrant, started the domain that is now one of the most highly regarded in the region. Is immigration good? Hmmm, that’s a thinker. The farming is certified biodynamic and the oak aging is restrained. Importer Peter Weygandt requested this unfiltered personal blend of about 90% Grenache (30% 115 year old vines, 70% average 50 years), with the remainder split by Mourvèdre, Syrah, Cinsault and Counoise, for the U.S. market. 2016 is considered a stellar vintage in Chateauneuf and this wine will continue to improve for 5-10 years. 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Girard is blended exclusively for American importer Peter Weygandt and is bottled unfiltered. It's about 90% Grenache and delivers a compelling mix of fragrant raspberries and savory, earthy spices. It's full-bodied and plush, with a long, complex finish that suggests it will age well for a decade or more. It's powerful and concentrated yet feels fresh and lively. (JC)
