2012 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Laurence" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1310609 96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark I loved the 2012 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Laurence, a serious wine from this solid, always charming vintage. Saddle leather, currants, garrigue, pepper, and ample spice notes flow to a full-bodied, opulent, concentrated wine that has terrific mid-palate depth. While it's relatively soft and forward on the attack, it has density as well as tannin. It's going to drink nicely for two decades. Inner quote mark (8/2018)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Previously unreviewed by The Wine Advocate, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Laurence is 80% Grenache, 6% Syrah, 4% Mourvèdre and the balance a mix of other authorized varieties. After approximately four years in foudre, it shows intense scents of leather, cherries, apricots and cocoa. It's full-bodied and supple, approachable now but capable of aging for up to two decades. It's a terrific example of this cuvée and how Grenache can benefit from extended élevage. (JC) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A throwback style and proud of it, with warm chestnut and bay leaf notes taking the lead, followed quickly by worn leather and smoldering tobacco accents. The core of dark currant, warmed cherry and mulled blackberry lies in reserve for now, while the finish lets singed iron and brick dust details hold sway. Just wait for everything to pull together in the cellar. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2017)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Pégaü's Cuvée Laurence is aged in wood for longer than the Cuvée Resérvée, but is otherwise nearly identical. The 2012 version is full-bodied, dense and richly textured, redolent of liniment, horse tack and garrigue, yet backed by ample cherry and plum fruit. Drink now–2025. (JC) Inner quote mark (5/2017)
