Pierre Usseglio Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul Proprietary Blend Wine 2009

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The dark ruby/plum 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Mon Aieul (in most years a blend of 95 to nearly 100% Grenache aged 90% in cement tanks and the remaining 10% in demi-muids) is seductive and concentrated with loads of plum fig blueberry and bouquet garni notes. With its lush heady mouthfeel full body real opulence and silkiness and some spice this wine is on a relatively fast evolutionary track and probably best drunk in its first 10-15 years of life. 92+ Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Quite ripe with layers of linzer torte cassis and blackberry fruit piled on top of well-rounded tannins. Loads of spice and licorice ripple through the finish with an underlying iron hint. Shows the focus and polish of the vintage. Best from 2012 through 2020. 1 000 cases made. -JM Wine Spectator.

Full ruby. Intense black raspberry and mulberry aromas are complicated by suggestions of Asian spices licorice and musky herbs. Bright and sappy on the palate with a seamless texture to the spice-accented red and dark berry compote flavors. Notes of lavender and allspice carry through the long juicy nicely focused finish. I suspect that this wine will drink well on the young side. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
