The Domaine of Raymond Usseglio has been thrown an insane amount of praise for this wine. Being a heralded biodynamic and organic Chateauneuf-du-Pape producer, the estate has never been shy of doing things a little differently in the region. In addition to their CNDP plantings the family hold five hectares of Cotes du Rhone and three hectares of vines under IGP.
'Les Amandiers' is definitely a more laid back approach from the second generation of the Domaine, Stephane, but is a brilliant way to wrap your head around what these guys are about. Grenache predominant filled out with Alicante & Clairette it's just a plush little number waiting to be glugged and loved.
