Vin beskrivelse
Cuvée de mon Aïeul er en special Cuvée fremstillet til hyldest af ”bedstefar” Francis Usseglio. Vinen fremstilles af 100% Grenache fra Grande Serres, La Crau og La Guigasse lieux-dit, ”Les Serres”, hvor vinstokkene blev plantet helt tilbage i 1926. Høstudbyttet til denne vin er ekstremt lavt, ca. 15-20 hl/ha, og produktionen derfor yderst beskeden med få tusinde flasker.

"Getting more than one exclamation in the notes, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée de Mon Aïeul is a deep, rich yet vibrant red that offers a kaleidoscope of kirsch liqueur, garrigue, crushed flowers, Asian spices, and cured meats. It's more opulent and sexier than the 2010, fresher and purer than the 2007, has deep, full-bodied aromas and flavors, and a huge finish. It's a sensational, heavenly Châteauneuf-du-Pape that tops out my scale. This cuvée is 100% Grenache that was not destemmed and was aged in 20% demi-muids and the balance in concrete tanks."
