Don't Miss These Wines From Pierre Usseglio!
by Amanda Donnelly
The long awaited 2007 Rhones are slowly but surely making their way into the marketplace, much to the delight of wine lovers everywhere. The vintage has received a tremendous amount of positive press:
From Robert Parker: "In Issue 179, I profiled the finest vintage I have ever tasted in Châteauneuf du Pape - 2007. In my thirty years of evaluating these wines, I don’t think any vintage has achieved the heights of complexity, richness, and overall purity and balance that 2007 did....Nearly every producer has attained largely unprecedented levels of quality. Moreover, the vintage is remarkably consistent from top to bottom...Where does 2007 fit. Think of 2007 as a hypothetical blend of an opulent, powerful, sumptuous year such as 1990, and a cooler drought vintage such as 2001...It is the vintage of my lifetime for this region, and I don’t say that lightly. These 2007s will also be very long-lived given their extraordinary balance."
