External Reviews for Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Cuvée Réservée
Ruby-red color. Ripe, pungent aromas of smoky red berries and plum tinged with rose, lavender and black olive. Sweet and fat in the mouth, with creamy red berry flavors and a strong note of plum liqueur. Finishes very sweet and long, with supple tannins and a lingering impression of dried flowers.
Syrah component, tasted from a barrique: Impressive saturated medium ruby. Ripe, gamey and deep on the nose. Penetrating acidity contributes to an impression of power. From foudre (grenache with a bit of syrah): Full medium ruby. Liqueur-like aromas of red fruits, spices and herbs. At once powerful and creamy in the mouth; really stuffed with ripe fruit. Silky and deep, with sound acidity and big, spreading tannins. The Ferauds worked a trade with a neighboring estate, and will be able to include 20% syrah in the ultimate blend.
Ruby-red. Spicy red fruits on the nose, complicated by tapenade, lavender and espresso. Very fresh and sweet, with energetic red and dark fruit flavors, suggestions of garrigue and supple tannins. Finishes deep and sappy, with a lingering cherry pit note clinging tenaciously.
A real powerhouse, with muscular layers of fig and black currant compote, backed by braised beef, chestnut, tobacco and tar flavors. The long, mesquite-filled finish lets additional bittersweet cocoa and dark fruit notes linger, with lots of garrigue. Best from 2008 through 2025.
The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee, tasted from multiple foudres, stylistically, looks to be a hypothetical blend of the 2003 and 1990.

A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2007 Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee 750ml
Super, with ripe plum and blackberry fruit supported by notes of briar, brick dust, tar and bacony smoke. Rich yet racy, with a powerful yet perfumy fruit- and dried herb-driven finish. Shows a lot now, but built for the long haul. Drink now through 2016.
Deep ruby. Seductive dark berry and kirsch aromas are complicated by musky garrigue, black olive and dark chocolate. Dense blackberry and bitter cherry flavors stain the palate and develop a licorice character with air. Tightens up on the long, chewy finish, which is dominated by tangy red berry fruit. This hugely concentrated wine deftly combines liveliness and power.
