The thickest, richest and most extravagant Cuvee du Mon Aieul ever produced is unquestionably the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul! Almost all old-vine Grenache brought up in tank (no new wood), it tastes like the raw essence of Grenache and has off-the-hook aromas and flavors of black raspberries, cassis, cured meats, licorice and incense. Massively rich and textured, with a full, layered mid-palate and sweet tannin, it's still an adolescent that drinks well today, due its insane amount of fruit, but will be even better in 2-3 years and have 20-25 years of overall longevity. - Jeb Dunnuck

Powerful dark berry and cherry preserve aromas are complicated by cola underbrush and Indian spices. Lush and creamy with concentrated black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors and a jolt of white pepper on the back. Finishes with mounting sweetness and excellent persistence. This refuses to let go of the palate.

A gorgeous dense shiny purple with a wide purple rim the 2007 'Mon Aeiul' is simply stunning. Packed and stacked with blueberry liqueur sweet vanilla lavender crème brulee and a marine layer it's much more modern than I would have expected-a pleasant surprise. Multifaceted and concentrated this is drinking surprisingly well right now but will reward anyone who waits a few years. This is an unforgettable combination of pure terroir and a top vintage. With one of the longest finishes I've ever tasted (and by far the longest for any Grenache I've ever had) it literally lasts for minutes on the palate and much longer in your memory.
