Vinous – 95
Made purely from Grenache, the 2019 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Mon Aïeul is a sexy beast. It bursts with expressive aromas of alluring red and black fruits, cured meat, garrigue, licorice, crème de cassis and some smokiness. Stating 15.5% alcohol on the label, the 2019 Mon Aïeul is full-bodied, opulent and packed with ample flavor concentration. A complex powerhouse with a long-lasting finish. Only 5,000 bottles produced.
Anticipated maturity: 2026-2039
