Pegau Cuvee Reservee 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of barrel aged grenache and syrah this table wine is bottled from vineyards in both Chateuneuf-du-Pape. It has a spicy attack and good fruit and gives the simple pleasure of a well-made wine ready to drink.

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

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.

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.
