Description:

Domaine Pierre Usseglio Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de mon Aieul 2007
Southern Rhone
The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul is just now starting to shed a tiny amount of its abundant baby fat that's been front and center since release. Still, it pulls no punches in its thrilling aromas and flavors of kirsch liqueur, roasted garrigue, black raspberries, incense, cured meats and licorice, and it is about as quintessential Grenache as you can find. Thrillingly concentrated, intense, perfumed and layered with incredible balance, this full-bodied beauty should hit its peak in another 2-3 years and keep for at least a decade after that." J. Dunnuck for TWA, 99 pts. 02/17
8 bottles
Estimate $800-1,425
