2001 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1043570 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Also brilliant, the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reserve 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.

 Aged for 18 months in old foudres and fermented with stems, the 2001 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservé, a blend of 85% Grenache, 9% Syrah, 4% Mourvèdre, and 2% other varieties, is a spectacular wine that should have a very long drink window. It’s meaty and wild bouquet of wild herb, tobacco, meat, roasted herb, and Pégaü spice is followed by a brutally structured, medium to full bodied wine that possesses solid concentration, a firm, precise texture, and a long, tannic finish. 95+  (3/2011)

 The 2001 Pegau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Reservée (magnum) was by far the most reticent and shut down bottle in this flight. Clearly a wine of tremendous potential, it needs time – and lots of it. Hints of smoke, leather, licorice and black olives lingered on the deep, powerful finish. (AG)  (6/2010)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 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. (ST)  (2/2004)

92 points Wine Spectator

 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. *Top 100 of 2004* (JM)  (8/2004)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
