Darkly colored with a garnet rim. This vintage showcases Pegau s identifiable bouquet of sour cherries and horse saddle. With medium weight the palate displays the classic grenache flavors of wild sauvage cherries while refreshingly tangy acidity combines with other spicy flavors and tannins to create an intriguing finish. Very traditional. Chuck Hayward.

Dark ruby. Wild highly aromatic bouquet of dark berry liqueur cherry pit smoked meat and garrigue. Deeply pitched black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors are broad and sappy with a smoky floral quality appearing on the back. The long finish features gentle tannic grip and lingering smokiness. Fans of old-school Chateauneuf are going to love this wine. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Under the estate Domaine du Pegau label, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee is spending a longer time in barrel and foudre than usual. Consequently, I tasted through three separate foudres, all of which looked spectacular. The final blend will probably be about 80% Grenache, 14% Syrah, 4% Mourvedre and 2% other varietals. The color is a dense black/ruby (one of the more opaque 2009s I saw), and the powerful nose offers up aromas of licorice, smoked herbs, charcuterie, bouquet garni, roasted meats, Peking duck, kirsch, blackberries and cassis. An enormous success, this cuvee has come on like gang busters since I tasted it last year, and may eclipse the stunning 2007. Given its tannin profile, the 2009 will require 5–6 years of cellaring and should keep for 30–35 years. Could this be a modern day version of Pegau’s compelling 1989 Cuvee Reservee?

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee has not yet been bottled, but Paul and Laurence Feraud allowed me to taste all the major lots, and I rated all of them between 92 and 95 points. It is another big wine, but there will not be any Capo produced in 2009 according to Laurence. The regular 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape is a peppery, spicy effort with lots of unctuosity, elevated alcohol and firm tannins which Paul believes will soften with the long aging in foudre this wine sees. Big and beefy, it appears to be a better balanced, richer version of their 2005 Cuvee Reservee...92-95" WA 10/10
