The Imperiale is made with 90% Grenache grapes. The rest is a mixture of several other varieties. All vineyards, some of which have existed since 1901, are biodynamically cared for. With a manual harvest and a low yield per hectare that is around 16-18 hectolitres. This is extremely low and ensures that only the best gravy is used for this top cuvée. On the nose we have small forest fruits, licorice, vanilla and dried bay leaf. On the palate, the ripe cassis and spicy character are the first to be noticed, in the final this wine gives well-presented tannins that are perfectly interwoven with the delicate acids. These wines are not filtered, which provides a unique aging potential. This 'Cuvée Impériale' from Usseglio is a topper that surprised us as sommeliers when tasting it. This wine is, as they say, 'a very big one' ... Santé!
