2000 Pierre Usseglio Mon Aieul Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #500610
Delicious! Explosive aromas of black cherry, dark fruit tones, floral notes, and licorice. Fleshy & mouthfilling, with dense, sweet red and dark berry flavors, and supple tannins. Overall the wine is lush, creamy and extremely long on the finish.

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The profound 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul (85% Grenache and the rest equal parts Syrah, Mourvedre, and Cinsault) tips the scales at 15% alcohol. From an old vineyard and cropped at 15 hectoliters per hectare, and aged only in foudre, it boasts a dense purple color in addition to an exquisite nose of violets, minerals, blueberries and blackberries. Pure and concentrated, but atypically tannic, it requires considerable aging as it is one of the vintage's more backward, broodingly powerful efforts. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2020.
The spectacular, full-bodied 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul is a beautiful black/purple color. Lovely nose of blueberry/blackberry liqueur intertwined with kirsch, minerals, and spring flower aromas. Extremely full-bodied, with a long finish that lingers on the palate for minutes.
