Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape 'Cuvee Reservee' Bottle 2010
"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
External Reviews for Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape 'Cuvee Reservee' Bottle
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

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.
