2007 Domaine Pierre Usseglio & Fils Châteauneuf-du-Pape

2007 Domaine Pierre Usseglio & Fils Châteauneuf-du-Pape with dinner tonight. This is in a very good place. I wanted to check in on the 2007 CdPs after the less than inspiring performance of the Vieux Donjon the other night. This is at peak with round tannins, nice balance, cherry pie and incense all the way. 80% Grenache, rest Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault and not a wine that can be paired with delicate foods. Steak, roasted lamb and spicy foods are the best match. @garyvee would say this is “bringing the thunder”.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
