2010-Domaine Pierre Usseglio Chateauneuf Du Pape Cuvee de mon Aieul
Chateauneuf Du Pape, Rhone, France
"Doe-Main Pee-Air Uss-Ellio Coo Vay day Mon Aool"
"My grandfather's lot," is one of the most exclusive ultra-reserve releases by a living legend of the region. The century old vines draw nutrients up from roots up to 50 feet long below ground that provide the most complex range of soil aromas and vibrant ripe fruit flavors. These range from red to black fruit and linger on the palate for quite some time. An ideal pairing with rich stews, gamey meats, hearty/spicy sausages, ham , oriental dishes, and TexMex BBQ. Decant for a minimum of 1 hour. 2010 ranks among the best vintages since WWII.
