ESTATE PRICE ! The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée de Mon Aïeul is another wonderful wine from this family estate. As always, it comes from three Grenache parcels: la Serres, la Crau and la Guigasse (there are 2 hectares in each parcel). In 2015 and 2016, this cuvée was not destemmed and was aged mostly in vats, with 15-20% in demi-muids. The 2016 spent a whopping 45 days on the skins before being pressed in barrel. This beauty offers the fine, finesse-driven style of the vintage, yet has full-bodied depth and richness, as well as sensational notes of raspberry, crushed flowers, licorice, Christmas fruitcake and spice. It is one of the best wines of the vintage and will benefit from short cellaring and an overall longevity of 20+ years.
