The Fragments is composed predominantly of Grenache, with smaller "fragments" of Syrah, Mourvedre, Counoise, and Clairette Rose, a mutation of the white grape Clairette. This wine is full of savoury and spicy characters, behind a base of ripe black fruits. This wine sees no oak so the fruit absolutely shines, with a tartness from the bright acidity and fresh fruity notes.

Enjoy with pancetta wrapped pork tenderloin.

The Usseglio family first started making wine in Chateauneuf du Pape after World War 2. Their first vintage was released in 1949. They have since converted their vineyards to organic and biodynamic certified.

Perhaps the most famous region in the world. The name means the Popes new castle. The first vines in the region were planted by the ancient Romans while Popes served their Papacy in the region of Avignon.

Grenache is the dominant variety, ripening is intensified through sun reflection off of round stones called galetes roules. Thanks to the Mistral wind blowing south from Dijon, the vines are cooled and protected from mildew, the wind is so intense it could blow the ears off a donkey. To prevent uprooting the vines are often staked down.
