I served 6 bottles of this over Christmas 2010. It was drinking very well. My friends loved it. I just wish I could find more. The barnyard was not overpowering. Beautifully balanced and elegant wine.

Big nose with blackberries, truffles, lavender and some barneyard. Very juicy, rich taste, ripe dark berries and prunes along with liqourice. Some mouthdrying tannins in the finish tells me this wine is to young.

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.

Beautiful traditional Chacirc;teauneuf, all built around mineral, smoke, leather and plum aromas. Good balance in this medium- to full-bodied red thanks to the clean, fresh fruit. The tannins are ripe but clamp down on the finish mdash; a wine created for a great steak! Drink now through 2020.

A powerful, concentrated 1999 Chacirc;teauneuf du Pape was produced at Chateau Pegau. The dense ruby/purple-colored 1999 Chacirc;teauneuf du Pape Cuveacute;e 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 estatersquo;s red wines, it was bottled with neither fining nor filtration.

The 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee is a prodigious effort. The dark plum/ruby/garnet color is followed by a spectacular smorgasbord of aromas, including roasted meats, lavender, ground pepper, and thick, sweet blackberry and brandy-macerated cherries. Full-bodied, dense, and chewy, it has high levels of tannin, a huge finish, and a monster upside. Although less voluptuous than the 2000, the 2001 looks to be potentially the longest-lived and finest Cuvee Reservee since the wonderful duo of 1989 and 1990, both of which are aging splendidly. Anticipated maturity: 2006ndash;2020.

A candidate for ldquo;wine of the vintagerdquo; is the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuveacute;e Reserveacute;e. Pegau did not produce a Cuveacute;e da Capo in 2004, and the Cuveacute;e Reserveacute;e has undoubtedly benefited from the inclusion of that stunning lot of wine. A late harvest lasted through the first week of October. Yields were 32 hectoliters per hectare, resulting in an opaque purple-colored effort revealing classic Provencal characteristics of melted licorice, roasted herbes de Provence, sweet blackberry and cherry fruit, and hints of gamy/animal notes and smoke. Meaty, full-bodied, stunningly concentrated and pure, and in need of 4ndash;5 years of cellaring, it promises to be one of the longest-lived wines of the vintage, lasting for a minimum of two decades.

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 therersquo;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.

As for the Domaine du Pegau estate wines, the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuveacute;e Reserveacute;e 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, pepper, lavender, and spice notes. The wine is full-bodied, rich, deep, and long. One foudre, which may become a Cuveacute;e Laurence, appears to be of the same quality as the Cuveacute;e Reserveacute;e, but the Laurence will be bottled much later than the Reserveacute;e, which was about to be bottled at the time of my visit in late August.

Winemaker's Notes:

"Shows gutsy blackberry and fig fruit up front, with notes of pepper, licorice, Turkish coffee and garrigue. The superlong finish lets roasted herb and beef notes check in, while gaining even more depth as this airs. Not quite as much range as 2003 and 2004, but has the intense grip of the vintage and should cruise in the cellar for two decades. Best from 2009 through 2028. 6,000 cases made." "The three lots of 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee (again, no Cuvee da Capo was produced in this vintage) had not yet been blended. Tasting through all of them, they scored between 91 and 94, so I suspect this offering will be similar, qualitatively, to the 2006. But, it is a very different style of wine. It reveals a dark ruby/purple hue along with notes of tar, roasted meats, and Provencal herbs, which give it a certain savage/animal character. The wine is ruggedly constructed, concentrated, full-bodied, tannic, and firm in the finish. For comparison purposes, it comes closest to 1995. The 2005 will need time to come around, and the Ferauds were leaning toward bottling it in late 2007 or early 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025." -92-94 Points - Robert Parker - The Wine Advocate
