TASTING NOTES

"While the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul does show a touch of oak influence on the nose, it also shows more freshness and energy than the regular cuvée. All Grenache, all whole cluster and aged in used demi-muids, there are waves of ripe raspberries and black cherries, drizzled with dark chocolate and spice. Full-bodied and velvety, it's a big, plush, welcoming mouthful of super ripe Grenache that avoids going completely over the top." Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Tasted blind. Showboating black fruit on the nose, with quite a porty style to the palate, especially with the sweetness of the alcohol. Lots of oak spice as well – this is a wine with lots of effort involved, although the finish doesn't seem to develop very much. The flavour is impressive, and delicious, but perhaps superficial at present." Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com
