I served 6 bottles of this over Christmas 2010. It was drinking very well. My friends loved it. I just wish I could find more. The barnyard was not overpowering. Beautifully balanced and elegant wine.

Big nose with blackberries, truffles, lavender and some barneyard. Very juicy, rich taste, ripe dark berries and prunes along with liqourice. Some mouthdrying tannins in the finish tells me this wine is to young.

The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservandeacute;e (normally a blend of approximately 80% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Mourvedre) exhibits a deep ruby/plum/garnet hue along with lots of grilled meat juices, roasted Provencal herbs, tar, blackberries and black currants. The wine is medium to full-bodied, still firm and tannic. It is those tannins that make the 2005 somewhat reminiscent of a tight, more austere-styled vintage such as 1995. The 2005 needs at least another 4andndash;5 years of cellaring, and should last for 20 years or more

The three lots of 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee (again, no Cuvee da Capo was produced in this vintage) had not yet been blended. Tasting through all of them, they scored between 91 and 94, so I suspect this offering will be similar, qualitatively, to the 2006. But, it is a very different style of wine. It reveals a dark ruby/purple hue along with notes of tar, roasted meats, and Provencal herbs, which give it a certain savage/animal character. The wine is ruggedly constructed, concentrated, full-bodied, tannic, and firm in the finish. For comparison purposes, it comes closest to 1995. The 2005 will need time to come around, and the Ferauds were leaning toward bottling it in late 2007 or early 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2012andndash;2025.

A powerful, concentrated 1999 Chacirc;teauneuf du Pape was produced at Chateau Pegau. The dense ruby/purple-colored 1999 Chacirc;teauneuf du Pape Cuveacute;e Reservee boasts a powerful bouquet of pepper, garrigue, black fruits, and earth. Full-bodied and expansive, with sweet tannin giving it a more open-knit, accessible style than most young vintages of Pegau, this is a wine to drink while waiting for the 1998 and 1995 to become fully mature. Like all of this estatersquo;s red wines, it was bottled with neither fining nor filtration.

This is one of the benchmarks for traditionally-made Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape. Readers looking for uncompromising Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape that can age for two decades need look no further than Pegau. Their primary vineyard plots are well-placed lieux-dits called Montpertuis, Rayas and La Crau, the latter being the parcel from which the bulk of Pegaursquo;s wine emerges. The 2000 Cuveacute;e Reserveacute;e may be one of the few 2000s that is better than its 1998 counterpart. A deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by sweet aromas of cregrave;me de cassis, kirsch liqueur, cedar, licorice and pepper. It smells like an open-air Provenccedil;al market. Sweet, fat, opulent and voluptuous, with fabulous fruit concentration, sweet tannin, and a long 45+ second finish, this powerful, deep, seamless 2000 is impeccably well-balanced. A tour de force in traditional Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape, it is accessible now, but should age easily for 15ndash;20 years.

A dark, lightly chewy style, with roasted mesquite and dark licorice notes leading the way for a powerful core of black Mission fig, blackberry preserve, Turkish coffee and bittersweet cocoa notes. There's a flash of truffle on the finish. Drink now through 2022.

Winemaker's Notes:

"Shows gutsy blackberry and fig fruit up front, with notes of pepper, licorice, Turkish coffee and garrigue. The superlong finish lets roasted herb and beef notes check in, while gaining even more depth as this airs. Not quite as much range as 2003 and 2004, but has the intense grip of the vintage and should cruise in the cellar for two decades. Best from 2009 through 2028. 6,000 cases made." "The three lots of 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee (again, no Cuvee da Capo was produced in this vintage) had not yet been blended. Tasting through all of them, they scored between 91 and 94, so I suspect this offering will be similar, qualitatively, to the 2006. But, it is a very different style of wine.
