2020 Domaine Raymond Usseglio & Fils "Le Péché - Originel Sans Soufre Ajouté" Cinsault Vin de France

SKU #1544707 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Both youthful and mature in personality, this is a striking Rhone red that combines considerable generosity with an intense floral and licorice character, plus a slew of ripe tannins. Not for everyone, but certainly very striking, expressive and well made. A pure cinsault from vines planted at the beginning of the 1960s. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (10/2021)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The all-Cinsault 2020 Vin de France Le Peche Originel Sans Soufre Ajoute does receive a light filtration prior to bottling. Like the preceding vintage, it comes from older vines on sand, and it's made entirely in concrete. It's not a deep dark red, but a bright, refreshing one, loaded with floral notes, stone-fruit flavors and some peppery spice. Medium to full-bodied, it's airy, supple and silky in feel, with a juicy, mouthwatering finish. (JC) Inner quote mark (5/2022)

K&L Notes

The domaine is now run by Stéphane, Raymond's son, and biodynamics is a key part of the farming of the estate. Critic Jeb Dunnuck calls Domaine Raymond Usseglio "the next superstar estate in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Côtes du Rhône". 100% Cinsault.
