Pegau Domaine du Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee Proprietary Blend Wine 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

"...a spectacular smorgasbord of aromas...Full-bodied, dense and chewy, it has high levels of tannin, a huge finish, and a monster upside...looks to be potentially one of the longest-lived and finest Cuvee Reservee since1989 and 1990....95+." WA 2/04.

Domaine du Pegau:
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 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

First foudre: Dark ruby-red. Superripe scented aromas of black fruits and licorice. Hugely sweet and chewy with rich flavors of dark chocolate and roasted garrigue. Solid acids and tannins give this a rather classic structure and will require some bottle aging. "Our other recent vintages have been fat and rich but almost too easy " notes Laurence who seemed almost apologetic when she told me this sample was below 15% alcohol. "In 1998 we picked fruit with sugars as h

Super with ripe plum and blackberry fruit supported by notes of briar brick dust tar and bacony smoke. Rich yet racy with a powerful yet perfumy fruit- and dried herb-driven finish. Shows a lot now but built for the long haul. Drink now through 2016. 5 500 cases made. (JM) Wine Spectator.
