About

94-96

"Easily one of the top wines in the vintage, the superstar 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee De Mon Aieul is 100% Grenache that was aged 90% in concrete tank and 10% in demi-muid. Gorgeous all around, with incredible polish and purity, it offers up copious kirsch, licorice, toasted spice and crushed flowers with a seamless, full-bodied profile. Elegant, remarkably fresh and with fine tannin, it’s hard to resist even now. Nevertheless, it should benefit from a year or three in the cellar and have 15 years of longevity. Drink 2016-2027."
