Domaine du Pegau:
The story behind the Domaine de Pegau begins in the late 17th century with our ancestors farming a few small fields of vines bordered with olive and cherry trees.

The story behind the Domaine de Pegau begins in the late 17th century with our ancestors farming a few small fields of vines bordered with olive and cherry trees. The revenue from the cherries sold in the local provençal markets covered the costs of working the vineyards. The olives and their golden oil were for family consumption, whilst the grapes went into producing the already famous red wine of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The grape picking was family work which took place in an ambience of light-heartedness and fun but with a respect for quality and even then a vigerous selection of the best grapes. At the end of the row the horse waited patiently for the moment when he felt the wooden paniers gorged with grapes weighing down his cart. Once at the winery the grapes were liahtlv Dressed to break the skins - foulé, (the word means literally press by stepping on), the whole bunches were put in trie vats and then the wine-making took place over a period of 15 days. Times have changed, but this traditional style of wine-making is continued today at the Domaine de Pegau. Read less

As for the Domaine du Pegau estate wines, the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee was tasted from multiple foudres, and appears to be better than the 2005 and 2004. The 2006 exhibits gamy, meaty, new saddle leather, kirsch liqueur, black currant,... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

One of the finest efforts of the vintage is the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvée Reservée. There is no Cuvee da Capo in 2004, and as my commentary will make clear, they decided not to produce one in 2005. The 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvée Reservée has a dark plum/garnet/purple color and a big, sweet nose of kirsch liqueur, lavender, roasted herbs, and beef juices intermixed with some licorice and spice. It is full-bodied, rich, deep, spicy, and dense with some tannins in the finish. The wine is not as accessible as many 2004s, and I would opt for cellaring it for 3-4 years and drinking it over the following 15-20. It's a gorgeous effort for the vintage.

Saturated red. Impressively complex scents of red and dark berries, cherry, leather and garrigue, with smoky minerals and dried flowers adding interest. Juicy raspberry and blackcurrant flavors pack serious punch and are seriously concentrated but there’s a real elegance to this wine. Licorice and candied flowers echo on the long, sappy finish. This looks to be as good as the superb 2005 today.

A powerful, concentrated 1999 Châteauneuf du Pape was produced at Chateau Pegau. The dense ruby/purple-colored 1999 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée 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 estate's red wines, it was bottled with neither fining nor filtration.

Ripe and very packed, delivering fig, macerated currant, bittersweet cocoa, roasted chestnut and tar notes. The long finish flows nicely, with lots of buried garrigue and incense hints carried by fresh acidity. Drink now through 2027.

Wonderfully fragrant and impressively ripe. What Chacirc;teauneuf is all about mdash; plenty of wet earth, mineral, plum, sweet tannins and sweet fruit. A cascade of pleasure, full-bodied and long on the sparkling finish. Drink now through 2015.

This is one of the benchmarks for traditionally-made Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Readers looking for uncompromising Châteauneuf-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 Pegau's wine emerges. The 2000 Cuvée Reservée 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 crème de cassis, kirsch liqueur, cedar, licorice and pepper. It smells like an open-air Provençal 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 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, it is accessible now, but should age easily for 15-20 years.
