Pierre Usseglio Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul 2012,  (WA94-96) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Pierre Usseglio Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul

Vintage: 2012
Region: France--Rhone--Chateauneuf du Pape
Appellation: Chateauneuf du Pape

WA94-96
Rated 94-96 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `Easily one of the top wines in the vintage, the superstar 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee De Mon Aieul is 100% Grenache that was aged 90% in concrete tank and 10% in demi-muid. Gorgeous all around, with incredible polish and purity, it offers up copious kirsch, licorice, toasted spice and crushed flowers with a seamless, full-bodied profile. Elegant, remarkably fresh and with fine tannin, it`s hard to resist even now. Nevertheless, it should benefit from a year or three in the cellar and have 15 years of longevity. Drink 2016-2027.?` -- Jeb Dunnuck in Issue #209 of the Wine Advocate.More Information about this producer: `An estate that continues to churn out outstanding wine after outstanding wine, regardless of the vintage, Domaine Pierre Usseglio is obviously in fine hands with brothers Jean-Pierre and Thierry Usseglio running the show. Covering roughly 55 acres in the appellation, they normally produce three Chateauneuf du Papes: a traditional made cuvee that`s roughly 75% Grenache and the rest Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault; a Grenache dominate Cuvee De Mon Aieul that`s aged in concrete tank; and their top Reserve des Deux Freres, which normally includes some Syrah and sees a small portion in new oak barrels. There was only one Chateauneuf du Pape produced in 2011, and no Reserve des Deux Freres in 2012.`
