Jeb Dunnuck - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The Usseglio's consider the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul to be their greatest to date. I've done numerous tastings with the 2010 and 2007 side by side, and more times than not, I think the 2007 is the better wine. Time will tell though, and both are sensational wines that readers should have in their cellars. The inky colored 2010 is 100% Grenache fermented with 30% stems and aged in a combination of older barrels and foudre. More focused and precise than the '07 (and even darker in color), yet still with massive concentration and depth, it offers deep, rich notes of blackberries, cassis, ground herbs, pepper and crushed rocks. Full-bodied, thick and layered on the palate, it never puts a foot wrong, has fabulous purity and a blockbuster finish. It needs 3-4 years of cellaring, but will have 20-25 years of longevity."

Product Description:

"The "Cuvee de mon Aieul" is a pure and concentrated wine. The nose is very complex with notes of raspberries, licorice and spices. It is a powerful wine, with elegance that will evolve wait for a decade." - Winery, translated from original French
