Usseglio Pierre Chateauneuf du Pape Mon Aieul 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

97 points Rhone Report: One of the top wines of the vintage, the 2006 Domaine Pierre Usseglio & Fils Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee de mon Aieul is a quintessential Chateauneuf, boasting awesome aromatics of kirsch and blackberry liquor, garrigue, licorice, and minerals. Both decadent and fresh at the same time on the nose, the wine is full bodied and balanced on the palate, showing a gorgeous, silky texture, good acidity and a very long, focused finish. This is delicious now, but I think it will be even better in 4 to 6 years, and then drink well for 15+. In all the fuss over the '07, don.t miss this wine! (Aug 2010)
