External Reviews for Pegau Domaine du Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee da Capo Proprietary Blend Wine
Inky purple. Heady explosive aromas of black raspberry and blueberry preserves garrigue and incense with smoky mineral and anise accents. Lush and palate-coating offering deeply concentrated black and blue fruit flavors that are enlivened by juicy acidity. Ridiculously rich but animated wine with excellent finishing thrust and lingering spiciness. This wine had still not been bottled when I tasted it in mid-November. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Still in foudre the 2010 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée da Capo is monumental stuff and I think possibly the greatest Cuvée da Capo produced to date. Showing off the chart levels of concentration and richness with jaw-dropping aromatics of roasted meats spice licorice liquid mineral and incredibly pure blackberry and assorted dark fruits it hits the palate with a gorgeously pure full-bodied and powerful texture that just keeps on giving. Nothing is out of place the fruit is perfectly ripe and it has thrilling purity and depth. The amount of tannin here would give me pause if it was not for all of the depth and richness through the middle. This legend in the making will need a full decade or more of cellaring yet will age and drink well for 2 decades or more after that. If you can afford it do not miss it. Rhone Report The.
No Cuvee da Capo was made in 2009 but the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee da Capo is composed of 80-85% Grenache and the rest a field blend of the other permitted varietals (Syrah Mourvedre Muscardin Terret Noir Counoise Vaccarese etc.). It is fashionable to compare the newest Capo with a previous vintage and for me the 2010 resembles 2007 more than their 2003 2000 or 1998. The stunningly rich 2010 has close to 16% natural alcohol and will be bottled after spending 18 months in old wood foudres. Notions of ripe figs kirsch liqueur cedar Christmas fruitcake smoked meats charcuterie and beef blood are present in this staggeringly complex rich full-throttle massive intense wine. Drink it over the next 20-30 years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
