Domaine Pierre Usseglio & Fils Cuvée De Mon Aïeul Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2009

$51.99

Another wine that got better and better over the evening was the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul. I've drunk through my fair share of bottles of this over the past few years. It has never shut down and has always shown well. A ripe, forward and sexy wine, it has lots of kirsch, garrigue, exotic spice and floral notes to go with a ripe, concentrated feel on the palate. It certainly has the vintage's Provencal character and is an exuberant, hedonistic Grenache to enjoy over the coming 10-12 years. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

High alcohol fruity wine for sure. The distant black olive aroma came through, but it was all fruit roll ups from my childhood. Not my style per se, but enjoyable.

Have had bottle variation but this is best showing yet. Black tea, almost blueberry which suggests ripeness but very balanced. Glycerine mid palate

Fun now, but not for the long haul. Tired after an hour.

Lost my notes and can’t remember other than it came off gamey and leather. Did enjoy it.

Sharing with elite palates who shrug; tasting the deep blackberry loveliness and smiling alone.

Definitely needs to open. High alcohol can be overwhelming but once that subsides enjoy the dark red berries and tart cranberry finish. Could crossover new world wine drinkers

Fun drink with meat. Big flavor but surprisingly fresh (for CdP) & grippy. Classic CdP
