Domaine Pierre Usseglio Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Tradition Blanc 2019
70% Clairette, 25% Grenache Blanc, 5% Bourboulenc
Developed in 50% stainless steel tank and 50% new barrels. Great care is taken to preserve all its finesse and freshness of the white.
It has aromas of exotic fruits, citrus fruits as well as toasted and brioche notes.
Can be drunk as soon as it is bottled but can also be aged for 5 years.
“93/100. Fresh and bright, with honeysuckle and heather notes followed by yellow apple, pear and yellow plum. The lightly toasty finish has nice cut. Drink now through 2024.” (Wine Spectator Jun 30, 2021)
