The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul is 95% Grenache and 5% Syrah aged 100% in tank prior to being bottled. This wine always comes from the three best parcels of the estate - Les Serres, La Crau, and Guignasse. This hugely concentrated, muscular wine is very powerful, excruciatingly tannic at present, but super-rich. Yields were a low 22 hectoliters per hectare because of the drought, and this blockbuster, muscular, virile style of wine...is certainly a terrific Mon Aieul... Robert Parker

Yowzers. Drinking beautifully, but could've used more time.

Intense plum, well balanced, sweet with nice acidity and some pepper and hot stones at the end. Tannins there but long and smooth finish. Great now and probably a good 5 year window in front of it.

Drinking well. Still has a long life ahead of it. Would be nice to revisit in 3 years.

Stained the glass, exotic and jammy with cigar box undertones.
