''It’s a terrific, full-bodied beauty that has ripe, sweet tannin, a great mid-palate and hedonistic notes of roasted herbs, black raspberries, chocolate and incense. It’s a no-brainer case purchase.'' 93 Points, Wine Advocate Magazine

''The 2016 is a wonderful showing in this vintage from Domaine Pierre Usseglio.  It begins with inviting aromas of raspberries and dark cherries which come together with spices, licorice, florals and garrigue. This is well-structured and possesses a gorgeous velvety texture. It continues to impress with its wonderful depth and concentration along with a lovely fresh character that persists through the finish. This is already offering plenty of appeal, but should also go on to age remarkably well over the course of the next decade plus.'' 93 Points, International Wine Report

''Silky, fresh, long and loaded with juicy kirsch, herbs, pepper, underbrush and  flowers. There is body and sweet fruits.'' 92 Points , The Wine Cellar Insider 

''The bouquet is rich, with exotic spices and date-prune connotations, mulled raspberry fruits, licorice. The palate is savoury, holds lip smacking content which is solid and compactly packed in. Mixed red fruits with black raisins and dried herbs mingle on the palate.'' John Livingstone-Learmonth, drinkrhone.com

”This truly rare vintage is a new benchmark. The growing season was warm during the day but cool at night, with an unusually large diurnal swing that led to slow, even ripening across all varieties, while maintaining acidity. Reds are laden with fruit, yet extremely racy and fresh in feel.” 99/100, Wine Spectator Magazine

“Unmissable. This is one of the best vintages of the past few decades. Do not miss it,” Decanter Magazine
