2018 Domaine Raymond Usseglio & Fils "La Creation" Vin de France

SKU #1544706 93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Made from 100% Grenache (equal parts from Lirac and from Châteauneuf du Pape), the 2018 Vin De France La Creation reveals a more ruby/translucent color as well a beautiful perfume of ripe black cherries, violets, cured meats, spice, and Provençal garrigue. Playing in the more medium-bodied end of the spectrum, it has a seamless, elegant texture, no hard edges, silky tannins, and a great, great finish. This is one hell of a Vin de France. Inner quote mark (10/2020)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Equal parts of old-vine Grenache from sandy soils (in Lirac) and stony soils (in Châteauneuf du Pape) were co-fermented to make the 2018 Vin de France le Creation. It's a full-bodied, concentrated effort, with bold black cherry fruit, an expansive mouthfeel, silky tannins and a lengthy, faintly herb and licorice-tinged finish. Despite its size, it never seems overdone, retaining a sense of freshness and balance. (JC) Inner quote mark (9/2020)

A new wine to the Raymond Usseglio line-up this is a stellar value and a wonderful take on Grenache. Loaded with succulent red fruits, spice and remarkable depth this is a beautiful red that outduels almost all Cotes-du-Rhone and rivals qualitatively many Chateauneuf-du-Pape's at twice the price!
Top Value! Drink from 2022 to 2028
