Made from 100% Grenache (from the Grande Serres, la Crau and La Guigasse lieux-dits) and completely destemmed, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aïeul is still aging in a mix of old demi-muids, and it’s a wine Thierry compares to the 2006, which I think is a reasonable comparison.. Offering a big, rich, hedonistic style, with sweet tannin, full-bodied richness and classic ripe Grenache notes of black raspberries, melted licorice and roasted herbs, it’s already incredibly drinkable; I suspect it will remain that way for most of its life.
94-96 points | Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate

The Domaine Pierre Usseglio is now run by Pierre's two sons Jean-Pierre and Thierry. Half of the vines on the estates are more than 60 years old and the remaining half are around 30 years old. The Reserve Des Deux Freres and Cuvee de Mon Aieul Chateauneuf-du-Pape are produced from some of the oldest vines of the region creating amazing wines.

'One of the top estates in Chateauneuf-du-Pape is that of the two brothers Thierry and JeanPierre Usseglio' Robert Parker
