Domaine Raymond Usseglio Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvée Girard 2017
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
|Brand||Domaine Raymond Usseglio|
A special cuvée made for American importer Peter Weygandt, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Girard includes a bit more old-vine Grenache, and it shows in the wine's increased elegance. It's more floral than the regular bottling, with scents of tea and roses, but it's also darker and richer, with black cherry fruit, a velvety mouthfeel and a long, layered finish.
