"The limited cuvée 2003 Châteauneuf du Pape Réserve des Deux Frères, which is aged 40% in tank and 60% in one-, two-, and three-year-old barrels as well as large demi-muids, is essentially the same as Mon Aieul, but additional press wine is added. This beefs the wine up to an even more extraordinarily concentrated character. This is another of the Châteauneuf du Papes of the vintage, a wine of remarkable length and prodigious levels of richness. It is no wimpy wine at 16.5% alcohol, but you would never know that from tasting it. Dense purple to the rim, with a huge nose of scorched earth, blackberry and blueberry liqueur, crème de cassis, roasted meat juices, and a hint of Provencal herbs interwoven with licorice and a touch of balsamic, it is voluptuously textured, with striking body, low acidity, and amazing concentration. This fabulous bottle of Châteauneuf du Pape should drink well for 20+ years. I asked the Usseglios what the most abundant years were over the last decade, and was told they were 2000, followed by 1999, 1998, 2001, 2003, and the smallest crop of all, 2004."

"Deep, saturated ruby-red. Incredibly perfumed nose of mineral-laced blackberry, red plum, macerated cherries, candied licorice, espresso and roasted herbs. Structured and powerful but also lush and utterly seamless, showing dense dark berry, truffle and candied floral flavors that stretch endlessly through the finish. Very fine, almost undetectable tannins add subtle structure and grip to the hugely concentrated flavors." Josh Raynolds, Vinous.com

"Toast dominates right now, though this has alluring spice, black cherry, mocha and plum sauce flavors followed by a long, vibrant, minerally finish. Beautifully sculpted and has lots in reserve, but seems more like power for power's sake, with the toast really dominant. The Cuvée de mon Aïeul is the smart buy. Best from 2007 through 2020. 500 cases made." Wine Spectator
