2004 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Laurence" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1317950 95 points Wine Spectator

 Really distinctive, with a gutsy, chewy frame supporting clove, blood orange, coffee, brick dust, macerated currant fruit, warm fig and hoisin sauce notes. The long, grippy finish has lots of mesquite, braised chestnut and spice notes. A classic throwback. Best from 2010 through 2030.  (11/2008)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 More evolved, the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Laurence gives up copious kirsch, saddle leather, exotic spice and underbrush in its medium to full-bodied, supple and nicely textured profile. A similar blend to the Cuvee Reservee, yet with additional time in older barrels, it is at full maturity, yet should evolve gracefully for another decade.(JD)  (2/2014)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright red. Impressively complex, exotic bouquet of dark berries, anise, botanical herbs and potpourri. Zesty minerality adds urgency to the deep blackberry and blueberry flavors, with a late kick of cracked pepper adding verve. The floral quality repeats on the long, sappy finish. Incidentally, Paul Feraud told me the Cuvee Laurence was never intended to be a super-cuvee, but rather a wine of extended elevage that he envisioned being better suited for early consumption.(JR)  (1/2009)

Rhone Blends



- 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.


- 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.
