A rocking bottle of wine and quite possibly a benchmark Chateauneuf, the 2000 Domaine Pierre Usseglio & Fils Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée de mon Aïeul is open for business with knockout aromatics of garrigue, saddle leather, meat and perfectly ripe, licorice infused fruit. Complex but also down right hedonistic, this is full bodied with sweet fruit, a full, smooth texture and a blockbuster finish. There’s still plenty of structure and tannin in the wine so I don’t see this fading anytime soon.
