2009 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Laurence" Chateauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1165040 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Starting off the reds and easily the best example of this cuvee since the 2001, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Laurence is incredible stuff. Deep, rich and layered, with copious notions of smoked meats, licorice, ground pepper, spice and saddle leather, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, terrific fruit intensity and a rich, mouth-coating texture. (JD) Inner quote mark (10/2013)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright violet color; looks a lot younger than it is. High-pitched red fruit and floral pastille scents are deepened by notes of olive, licorice and smoked meat. Sweet, expansive and seamless, offering intense raspberry and cherry compote flavors accented by white pepper and succulent herbs. Velvety tannins build on a finish of appealing sweetness, with a touch of bitter chocolate. Inner quote mark (1/2014)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Brilliant ruby. A wild, highly perfumed bouquet evokes candied dark berries, smoky minerals and licorice, with a sexy floral note emerging with air. Sappy, penetrating and sweet on the palate, offering intense black raspberry and lavender pastille flavors that put on weight with air. Shows surprising vivacity for a hot-year wine and finishes spicy, focused and very long, leaving a note of spicecake behind. (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2015)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dark and ripe, with blackberry, plum and fig fruit layered with notes of ganache, charcoal and dark olive. This cuts a broad, smoky path through the finish, offering some slightly chewy grip and ample flesh. A lovely lingering bay leaf hint adds extra nuance. Impressive, though a touch drier in feel than the Cuvée Réservée in this vintage. (JM) Inner quote mark (6/2014)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Laurence Féraud takes this from some of her oldest vines, crushes the whole bunches lightly into cement vats and leaves it to ferment spontaneously, before moving it into old oak foudres to age 36 to 48 months. The result in 2009 is earthy and dense, a staunchly traditional take on Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Spiced cherry notes emerge with air, as does an appealingly savory, miso-like complexity that lasts. The tannins hold it firm, lending the wine the chewiness of a shiitake. You could drink this now, with miso-marinated pork chops, but the structure suggests it will last well for the next decade or more. Inner quote mark (2/2015)
