TASTING NOTES

"All Grenache, all whole cluster and from parcels in the lieux-dits of La Guigasse, Le Crau and Les Serres, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul has evolved beautifully since I tasted it last year, showing vibrant floral and tea-like notes, raspberry fruit and hints of licorice. It's full-bodied, rich and velvety, with overtones of spice cake on the long, crisp finish. Tasting it, I was surprised to find out what the alcohol level was, because it showed no obvious heat—a testament to how much else is going on here." Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #238

"Quite intense and moody. Dark-fruit aromas with wild herbs, tarry, slate-like, stony notes and dark chocolate, too. The palate is unashamedly ripe, packed with dark, rich fruit and a thread of dark chocolate. Weighs in warm at the finish. Drink or hold." JamesSuckling.com

"Rich and sweet red fruit on the nose, going slightly confected on the palate. There's a savoury smoked meat note to rescue the finish, and very fine tannin to give firmness. Could use a bit more persistence." Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com
