Domaine Pierre Usseglio & Fils Cuvée De Mon Aïeul Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2001 (1500ml)

$315

The color is a dense purple, and the bouquet offers sweet but reserved aromas of blackberries, raspberries, crushed rocks, and kirsch liqueur. It possesses superb texture, enormous body, and tremendous purity as well as overall symmetry. The tannin is high, but it is largely concealed by the wealth of fruit and extract. Give it 3-4 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following 15-18. Robert Parker

Some oxidation brought this down from 9.7 or 9.8. Decanting opened it but did not increase the ox. Last bottle, some were like this one, some were near perfection. Suggest drink now.

Dusty, juniper, exotic sweet spices, prettiest out of all and relatively cool. Medium high alcohol, medium plus finish.
