Domaine Raymond Usseglio Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvée Girard 2019
|France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape
|Domaine Raymond Usseglio
Quite different than the base cuvée (which isn't always the case), the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Girard is a special blend that usually includes more Mourvèdre. Lots of red and black fruits, peppery garrigue, and spice dominate the bouquet, and this beauty is medium to full-bodied and brings lots of fruit and richness, yet it stays balanced, light on its feet, and a joy to drink. Drink it over the coming 15+ years.
