Tasting Notes

One of the more upfront, downright sexy vintages for this cuvee, the 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul has been firing on all cylinders for about a decade now. Giving up terrific notes of spice-box, cured meats, garrigue and mature Grenache fruit, this beauty is full-bodied, rich, concentrated and mouth filling, with serious amounts of fruit and texture. Like the '99, it's fully mature, but should hold nicely, although there's no need to delay gratification. In 2000, this incorporated a new parcel of sandy soils from a site just north of Domaine de la Solitude, in the la Crau lieu-dit. This blend was 85% Grenache, the rest Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvedre raised all in foudre.

Provenance

This Canadian client has been collecting for over ten years - his interest (mainly in red wines) budding from tasting with good friends. This can be seen in his fine Italian and Californian offerings, along with a touch of Champagne. The main source for his collection was through the LCBO, the Waddingtons Auction, and direct from winery. All of which were stored in a temperature and humidity controlled wine cooler.
