This bottle of 2000 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée was drunk over two days and really took some time to unwind but when it did, yaazow, it’s some killer juice. Garrigue, garrigue and more garrigue show up on the nose and mix with spice, licorice, pepper and tree bark notes. The palate really shines and has gobs of rich fruit overlaying some serious structure. Rich, deep and amazing long, this is an outstanding bottle of wine. Drink now through 2020.
Full ruby-red. Liqueur-like aromas of black raspberry, black cherry and licorice. Lush, fat and full in the mouth, with superb concentration and richness. A seamless wine with great Chateauneuf du Pape character. Complicating notes of tar and chocolate. Finishes with dusty, broad tannins and great persistence. This can be enjoyed now with the right dishes but should age gracefully. (ST)
Fully mature, with a ruby/amber color that shows some lightening at the rim, it offers classic Pegau garrigue, olive tapenade, beef blood and wild herbs to go with a medium to full-bodied, seamless and resolved profile on the palate. It still has a core of sweet fruit and is drinking nicely now. (JD)
Beautiful traditional Châteauneuf, 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--a wine created for a great steak! Drink now through 2020. (PM)
