Lot #432. Pierre Usseglio Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée de Mon Aïeul 2001

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 99 WA.
"More precise and focused than the more exuberant, sexy and rounded '00, the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul is borderline perfection (I seriously considered adding a point here) and a monumental Chateauneuf du Pape that is drinking at point. Kirsch, olive tapenade, roasted meats, tobacco and assorted mature Grenache characteristics give way to a full-bodied, massively endowed, concentrated, gorgeously layered wine that's just about as good as it gets. I kept coming back to this over the evening and it got better and better with air, so while fully mature, it's not going anywhere soon." Wine Advocate Special Report, Sep 2015
Provenance: The Mode Cellar
Notes: Very lightly bin soiled capsule, very lightly torn, nicked, wine stained label.
