Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape 'Cuvee Reservee' Bottle 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Looking at the 2010s and a brilliant vintage for Laurence, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape offers up classic Pegau aromas and flavors of ripe dark fruits, garrigue, cured meats, tobacco leaf, saddle leather and hints of game. Full-bodied and beautifully concentrated, it offers a seamless, layered profile on the palate with thrilling mid-palate depth, sweet, yet substantial tannin, and a blockbuster finish that stays fresh and beautifully focused. Quite polished by this estates standards, it nevertheless screams southern France and I doubt it’s possible to have too much of this beauty in the cellar. It will absolutely thrill over the coming 2-3 decades. Drink 2016-2030...98." WA 10/13 "#7 of the Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2013: Intense, with the tarry, bittersweet cocoa-fueled grip of the vintage running through a well-endowed core of crushed plum, blackberry paste and braised fig. The muscular finish picks up notes of brick dust, pepper, warm chestnut leaf and smoldering charcoal. A throwback profile, with a hyperripe core of fruit—and it works. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and others...97" WS 11/13 "More straight and clean, yet with rocking concentration and tannic structure, the 2010 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée is a beauty! Scheduled to be bottled later this year, it delivers classic aromas of black fruits, mineral, iron, and wild herb qualities on the nose, and what it lacks (at the moment) in complexity, it more than makes up for with brilliant purity, clear, delineated aromas, and awesome focus and length. This full-bodied, rich, and layered 2010 will handsomely reward cellaring, and drink well for decades. It is one of the most impressive Cuvée Réservées I‟ve tasted...96-99" RR 10/12

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

Laurence Féraud and her father, Paul, produced a stunning Cuvée Réservée in the 2010 vintage. Sourced from 46 acres of small parcels scattered around the appellation, the wine is 80 percent Grenache, with mostly Syrah and Mourvèdre making up the balance. In the winery, whole clusters are crushed then fermented in concrete vats, with regular pump-overs and occasional punch-downs to extract color and tannins. It ages for 18 months in large old foudres. 6,580 cases made.

The Pegau Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Reservee is a dark purple color, with flavors of spice and licorice and a persistent roundness. Each vintage of the Reservee is an assembly of the various plots and various grape varieties and bottling takes place after two years of barrel aging.

The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee which I tasted from several foudres is essentially equivalent in quality but it has not yet been bottled. If I understood Paul Feraud correctly he tends to prefer the 2009 but says Laurence prefers the 2010. In any event this is one of those "pick em" dilemmas. The 2010 is a fabulous wine of exceptional intensity tremendous flavor authority and full-bodied power. It is slightly more reserved than the more flamboyant 2009 but of course it is sti

Intense, with the tarry, bittersweet cocoa-fueled grip of the vintage running through a well-endowed core of crushed plum, blackberry paste and braised fig. The muscular finish picks up notes of brick dust, pepper, warm chestnut leaf and smoldering charcoal. A throwback profile, with a hyperripe core of fruit — and it works. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and others. Best from 2015 through 2035.

Deep ruby. An intensely perfumed bouquet evokes dried cherry cassis potpourri and smoked meat with a spicy nuance adding vivacity. Rich but energetic on the palate offering sweet dark fruit flavors and notes of candied lavender and anise. Chewy tannins add grip to a long smoky and powerful finish which leaves a bitter cherry note behind. Definitely built for the long haul; don t touch this wine for at least six or seven years.

Tasting Notes:

Golden color, powerful, is has good acidity supporting complex aromas of white flowers, peach and apple.
