Tasting Notes:

91 points "Medium red. Bright red berries on the nose, with subtle floral accents. In a fresh, elegant style, with vibrant raspberry and strawberry flavors and very fine, fully absorbed tannins. Finishes with silky-sweet red fruits, a bright mineral note and excellent length."

92 points "The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition, a 100% destemmed cuvee produced from 25 hectoliters per hectare and aged 80% in old wood foudres and 20% in tank, is dense purple with terrific fruit notes of raspberry, black cherry, and even some black currant and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, with good acidity, moderate tannin, and outstanding ripeness and length, this wine will be at its best in 2-3 years, and drink well for 12-15. Brothers Jean-Pierre and Thierry Usseglio have once again produced some of the finest Chateauneuf du Papes of the vintage, particularly in 2005. This is no small accomplishment given the fact that their 2003 cuvees were among the very finest wines of that challenging and irregular year." Best 2009-2022
