Pegau Domaine du Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Laurence Proprietary Blend Wine 2006

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Perfumed evolved and complex the 2006 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Laurence is a blend of roughly 85% Grenache with the rest a mix of Syrah Mourvèdre Counoise Cinsault and Vaccarèse that undergoes an extended aging of 3-4 years in a combination of small barrels and large foudres. The wine is surprisingly evolved and already open for business showing a nuanced bouquet of sweet cassis aged leather meat licorice and garrigue. This leads to a medium to full bodied wine that is all about charm and comfort showing a round soft texture sweet fruit and an overall approachable open profile. While this firms up slightly on the finish and will no doubt evolve and drink well for a decade or longer I don t see any reason to hold off on drinking these... Rhone Report The.

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

Exhibits a gorgeous mix of damson plum cherry preserves fig paste and anise flavors layered with roasted chestnut and mesquite notes all framed by a mouthwatering cocoa powder edge. Refined despite its old-school grippy finish. Well-built for the cellar. Best from 2012 through 2030. 100 cases imported. -JM Wine Spectator.

Bright ruby. Slightly medicinal aromas of redcurrant raspberry and garrigue are lifted by a spicy element. Supple sweet red berry cherry and floral flavors show very good concentration and firm acidity gives the wine energy. Lively mineral-driven floral notes linger on a strikingly long sappy precise finish. -Josh Raynolds Stephen Tanzers IWC.
