94 Pts Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul, which spends 90% of its time in tank and 10% in old barrels, has turned out even better in bottle than it performed from cask. Basically 100% Grenache in 2004, this is clearly better than the 1999, which I own and drink frequently. It exhibits a deep ruby purple color and a wonderful sweet nose of black cherry, raspberry, licorice, spice box, and roasted herbs. Voluminous for a 2004, with full body, beautiful texture, a long, heady finish, and loads of fruit, glycerin, and decent acidity, this wine should drink beautifully for 12-15+ years. There was no 2004 Reserve des Deux Freres as all of that wine was put into the Mon Aieul." (02/07)

"Packed with pure, ripe fruit--raspberry, boysenberry and fig--along with cocoa, tar and violet notes. Long, rich, dark finish shows lots of exotic spice, date and dried fruit notes. Tight on the finish, so cellar for a while. Best from 2007 through 2024. 1,665 cases made. -JM" (11/06)
93 Pts Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media
"Explosively floral aromas of raspberry and wild strawberry complicated by mineral and lavender notes. Concentrated and deep, with sweet but nicely focused red fruit and bitter cherry flavors accompanied by exotic smoked meat and black walnut tones. An impressively rich, powerful wine, offering serious palate coverage and a long, very sweet finish." (02/07)
"The 'Mon Aieul' fruit is typically destemmed nearly 100% before entering cement tanks to ferment and macerate for three to four weeks. Thierry is an advocate of performing remontage and delestage every other day, if not daily. These actions help to bring the most out of the new wine and give it a better aromatic presence. The wine is aged in cement tank (80%) and foudres/barriques (20%) for 14-18 months before bottling. The yield never exceed 25 hectoliters/hectare (approx. 1.50 tons/acre!)" - Importer
"There's a common saying amongst great winemaker's. It is '90% of the wine is made in the vines.' You can believe that when talking about Pierre Usseglio & Fils. This family is and always has been known for their skill in taking care of their vines. (As well as those of their friends if there are sick vines that need attention) It is Jean-Pierre who spends most of the time in the vines while Thierry maintains the cellar. Jean-Pierre lets the vines do their and he ensures they work well by performing green harvest when needed, applying the necessary treatments in minimal amounts and working the soil deep below the surface. The 'Mon Aieul' comes from the following vineyards: 'La Crau,' [galets roules & sandy soils] 'Les Serres,' [clay & limestone soils] and 'Les Esquirons' [clay & galets roules soils]. Harvest is 100% manual with severe sorting on the vine, on the tractor and again in the cellar." - Importer
"In 1931, Francis Usseglio left his native Piedmont, Itlay to work in the vineyards of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. After eight years of hard work he was offered the chance to take care of a vigneron's vines and would be able to keep some of the fruit to produce his own wine. Francis leapt at this chance and in 1949 the first vintage of Usseglio Chateauneuf-du-Pape was made. It didnât take long for Francis' son, Pierre, to catch the fever and he would later take over for his father. Over the years Pierre was able to obtain more and more land so he could produce more wine. Today, Pierre's two sons, Jean-Pierre and Thierry, continue their family's tradition and have elevated the estate to celebrity status in the winemaking world." - Importer
