Explosively floral aromas of raspberry and wild strawberry complicated by mineral and lavender notes. Concentrated and deep, with sweet but nicely focused red fruit and bitter cherry flavors accompanied by exotic smoked meat and black walnut tones. An impressively rich, powerful wine, offering serious palate coverage and a long, very sweet finish.
Packed with pure, ripe fruit--raspberry, boysenberry and fig--along with cocoa, tar and violet notes. Long, rich, dark finish shows lots of exotic spice, date and dried fruit notes. Tight on the finish, so cellar for a while. Best from 2007 through 2024.
Richer, more perfumed and complex, the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul (100% Grenache aged all in concrete tank) offers up gorgeous notes of kirsch, sweet garrigue, flowers and red licorice in its full-bodied, supple and textured profile. Showing the vintage freshness and elegance, it nevertheless dishes out loads of fruit and texture, with fine tannin and a great finish. Count me a fan, and I’d drink bottles over the coming 4-5 years, yet it should evolve gracefully for a decade.
