Lot #268. Raymond Usseglio Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Impériale 2006

Description: Consists of 12 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 94 WA.
"One of the strong efforts, and a potential wine of the vintage, is the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Imperiale. An extraordinarily superb expression of kirsch liqueur intermixed with sandy, resiny notes as well as hints of seaweed, garrigue, and pepper, this wine is deep, full-bodied fabulously concentrated, with silky tannins and decent acidity. It’s a beauty and clearly a great example of old-vine Grenache made in unmanipulated, uncompromising fashion." Wine Advocate #179, Oct 2008
Provenance: The Sentier Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $700
