Stephane Usseglio 'L'Autre Rive' Lirac
|Availability:||In stock (12)|
Stephane Usseglio has been producing wines from his estate in Lirac, since the 1980s. Before that, he climbed the ladder to chief winemaker at his father’s Domaine in Châteauneuf-du-Pape at only 22 years of age, and never looked back. L’Autre Rive translates to ‘the other shore’ as Lirac has long been overshadowed and overlooked, due to the infamous Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This wine is mainly a blend of old-vine Grenache with small amounts of Syrah and Cinsault. It carries lots of ripe red fruit and blue plums with a good kick of spice and savoury balsamic.
