2005 Domaine Pierre Usseglio et Fils Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1167235 92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Taut and reserved for now, with red plum and red currant notes held back by sinewy tannins and a racy minerality. Has solid length, and the flesh should fill out with cellaring. Best from 2008 through 2022. Inner quote mark (10/2007)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The classic 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape is a beautiful wine that offers lots of ripe blackberry, toasted spice, olive and garrigue to go with a full, fleshy, Provençal style on the palate. Made from 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 5% Cinsault and 5% Mourvèdre, it spent 12 months in 80% foudre and 20% barrel. Drink this classic traditional cuvee anytime over the coming 4-6 years. (JD) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright red. Strikingly fresh aromas of vibrant strawberry and cherry, gaining depth and ripeness with air. The darker fruits continue onto the palate, which is brightened by a spicy blood orange quality. Finishes with excellent snap and drive, especially for a 'basic' bottling. This has gained richness since last year but not at the expense of vivacity. Inner quote mark (1/2008)
