Vineyard & Vinification Note

The parcels are spread over the entire area of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation.

The various locations boast four different types of terroir, each having a great impact on the wines’ complexity. There are lime-rich, cool locations and dry, warm sandy soil.

24 hectares of Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge

‘Cuvée de Mon Aieul’ is a selection of grapes from 75—to 90-year-old vines. It comes from plots on La Crau, les Bédines, or les Serres, where the soils are sand and stone, covered in the region’s famous galets.

Harvest is done by hand.

The bunches are destemmed, depending on the ripeness of the stalks, and then they are very slightly crushed before macerating in concrete vats for 30 to 40 days. Fermentation temperatures are between 25 ° – 28 °. During this period, procedures such as pumping over, délestage or batonnage occur. These procedures allow a gentle extraction of the aromatic components to ensure good concentration and intense colours.

It is aged in concrete tanks for 18 months.

Jeb Dunnuck

One of the top handful of wines in the vintage, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée De Mon Aïeul is all Grenache, from the different terroirs (one sand, one clay, and one limestone) that was 50% destemmed and aged all in older demi-muids. Reminding me of the 2007 with its incredible perfume of ripe black raspberries, strawberries, flowery incense, peppery and Provençal garrigue, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a round, expansive texture, gorgeous tannins, and a blockbuster of a finish. A wine of incredibly purity, precision, and elegance, yet also with power and opulence, this sensational effort is in need of 3-4 years of bottle age and will keep for two decades. 98+ Points, November 2021

Wine Advocate

All Grenache, all whole cluster, the 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul combines hints of menthol and steaminess with big blackberry and raspberry fruit. Full-bodied, creamy and lush, it finishes long and velvety, a tour de force of Grenache. Drink Date: 2023 – 203596 Points, Joe Czerwinski, May 2022

Wine Spectator

This has the heady edge of the vintage, with gutsy blackberry, plum and fig compote notes forming the bulk of the wine, while singed juniper, warm stone and tar notes score the finish. Delivers a nice licorice snap at the very end for a finishing kick. Best from 2023 through 2035. 94 Points, James Molesworth, December 2021

Food Pairing

Enjoy with game, a rack of lamb and strong cheeses.
