User Reviews for Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee da Capo Pegau Premier

Winemaker's Notes:

"...a monument to old vine Grenache as well as traditionally made Chateauneuf du Pape...has virtually everything you could ever want in a profound Chateauneuf du Pape...The extraordinary nose reveals aromas of kirsch liqueur, new saddle leather, animal fur, Provencal herbs, spice box, licorice, and a salty sea breeze character. On the palate, the wine is enormous, with an unctuosity, thickness, and purity that must be tasted to be believed...100." WA 2/04. "Wine simply doesn‟t get any better than the 2000 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée da Capo and it is a profound, absolutely stunning bottle of wine. A blend of 95% old vine Grenache and the rest a mix of allowed varieties, it possesses jaw-dropping, massively complex aromas of garrigue, mature dark fruits, cigar, spice box, and roasted meats on the nose. While the nose is mature, the palate is still youthful and fresh, showing a full-bodied, powerful texture, loads of concentration through the mid-palate, and ripe, sweet tannin on the blockbuster finish. While this should continue to shine for another decade (or more), I would not hesitate to start cracking bottles as this is in a great spot. Simply an awesome wine that I wish every Châteauneuf-du-Pape fan could taste...100" RR 9/11
