Bottle open about an hour, and double-decanted. I think this needed more air time or better, more bottle age - wine is balanced but not quite fully integrated and a bit tannic/acidic (but not off-putting). Nose of dark fruit with tart notes, sharper garrigue, hint of milk chocolate, and rustic floral perfume. In the mouth somewhat smokey, sour, red, ripe neither sweet nor sour fruit (cherry, blackberry, perhaps plum) with drying tannin at the front of the tongue and mouth. Finishes with a bit of heat and fading fruit. Dry. Body medium, acid medium plus, tannin medium plus.
External Reviews for Domaine du Pégaü Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée
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.
The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reserveacute;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 4ndash;5 years of cellaring, and should last for 20 years or more
Saturated ruby. A wild, highly expressive bouquet displays red and dark berries, Asian spice and musky garrigue, accented by smoke and game notes in the background. Juicy and precise, with sweet raspberry and cherry flavors that take a bitter turn with air. Tannins come on late and add grip to a long, sappy finish.
This is a remarkable marriage of density and grace, as layers of roasted fig, braised chestnut and dried blood orange stay supple and plush, embedded with rounded grip and alluring cocoa, graphite and incense notes. Thereandrsquo;s a long, espresso- and hoisin sauce-filled finish. Best from 2011 through 2030.

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.
Opaque ruby. The highly perfumed nose offers an exotic array of red and dark berries, spicecake and potpourri, with hints of smoky herbs and olive adding complexity. Juicy and fresh for a wine that’s over 15% alcohol, offering sweet raspberry and cherry flavors framed by silky tannins. Very suave and open-knit today, with excellent finishing clarity and smoky persistence.
