Oh baby... The 2001 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Laurence is open, flamboyant and sexy with licorice, dark fruit and spice notes. Shows a fabulous palate that is full, soft, balanced and incredibly long. Just coats your mouth and stays there.
In contrast, the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Laurence remains very youthful and less evolved than the 2004. The color is a healthy plum/garnet with slight lightening at the edge. Expansively flavored with abundant notes of garrigue, sandalwood, black cherries, licorice and herbs, this full-bodied wine possesses sweet tannins as well as emerging complexity. It should drink well for two more decades. It is my second favorite Cuvee Laurence, after the 1998. (RP)
Loaded with character, this has finally begun to soften, boasting a fleshy edge to the wide range of chestnut, roasted tobacco leaf, grilled beef, singed cedar and mulled fig and black currant fruit. Lots of warm stone and tar notes pump through the finish, where a chestnut hint lingers. (JM, Web-2012)
