TASTING NOTES

"Also brilliant, the 2001 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Reservée is full-bodied and concentrated, with classic Pegau wildness, beef blood, saddle leather and garrigue all emerging from the glass. Slightly lighter in color and weight when compared to the 2003, it's showing some maturity and can be consumed anytime, but will without a doubt continue to evolve gracefully for another decade or more. Created in 1987 (although there were some earlier bottling released) Domaine du Pegau is run today by the father/daughter team of Paul and Laurence Feraud. When setting up this retrospective, I was shocked when Laurence Feraud told me she had never done a vertical tasting like this. While I know they drink their older cuvées often, I think the idea of opening so many wines for one tasting could be seen as wasteful, and in reality, it is. However, it's also incredibly educational, and as Laurence commented, shows the story of the domaine. I was thrilled to take part in this tasting, which also included Laurence's parents, Paul and Odette." Jeb Dunnuck, eRobertParker.com #214

"Saturated deep red. Superripe, utterly captivating aromas of raspberry liqueur, leather, chocolate, coffee bean, pepper, garrique, black olive and licorice. Huge and voluminous, with superripe, palate-saturating flavors of candied, liqueur-like red fruits, game, pepper and wild herbs, with a complicating saline quality. Exotic and larger than life. Wonderfully fat and full on the sweet, lush aftertaste. Perhaps a bit less tarry and more fruit-driven than the 2000. This will fill your entire mouth and then some." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"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." Wine Spectator
