2000 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1021746 96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark 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 amazingly long, this is an outstanding bottle of wine. Inner quote mark (9/2007)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee may be one of the few 2000s that is better than its 1998 counterpart. A deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by sweet aromas of creme de cassis, kirsch liqueur, cedar, licorice, and pepper. It smells like an open-air Provencal market. Sweet, fat, opulent, and voluptuous, with fabulous fruit concentration, sweet tannin, and a long, 45+ second finish, this powerful, deep, seamless 2000 is impeccably well-balanced. This is one of the benchmarks for traditionally-made Chateauneuf du Pape. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2003)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Clear and translucent now, with very mellow, harmonious aromas: earth, menthol, coffee, pine and lavender. On the palate, it is a long, full, vivid, amply constructed wine with palpable tannins, with acidity which remains fruit-saturated, and with complex spice-and-incense notes to finish. A fine effort which merits further ageing for those who love the mature style. (AJ) Inner quote mark (5/2016)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark 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) Inner quote mark (1/2003)
