Description

Similar in style to the , the Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul is rounded and textured, with tons of charm in its blackberry, black raspberry, violets, garrigue and spice aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, supple and textured, it shows the vintage's upfront and forward character, yet has beautiful purity of fruit and enough density to drink nicely through 2027. Most s are already showing nicely, and this is no exception.

Opaque ruby.  Black raspberry, Indian spices and licorice on the highly perfumed nose, with a sexy floral overtone gaining strength with air.  Red and dark berry preserve flavors show excellent depth and sweetness, along with an assertive spiciness.  Supple tannins build on a finish that accentuates the floral and berry notes.
