What the Critics say
Brilliant ruby-red. An expansive, spice-accented bouquet evokes ripe red fruits, incense and potpourri, and a smoky mineral element adds urgency. Juicy, seamless and appealingly sweet, offering concentrated raspberry, boysenberry and floral pastille flavors that firm up slowly and turn spicier on the back half. Shows serious heft, but there's a distinctly graceful quality as well. Finishes sappy, gently tannic and extremely long, leaving a suave lavender pastille note behind.
From 75-90yr old vines in select parcels in La Crau, Bédines and Greenhouses. Cuvee de Mon Aieul is aged in only concrete to allow an unadulterated expression of the amazing old fruit.
