Tasting Note:

This Cuvée was created by the Usseglio borthers as a homage to their grandfather. A 100% Grenache from 80-year- old vines planted on a mixture of three differing terroirs – galets roulets, clay and sand, aged in a mixture of used demi muid barrels and smaller barriques. This is truly aristocratic; fine noble tannins support a palate rich in fruit and flavour, spiced autumn berry, damson, bramble, sap and clove spice. Pure, long with a fine but fortifying tannic grip. Delicious.
