2013 Domaine du Pegau "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1479682 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A great success from a challenging vintage, the 2013 Pegau is as aromatic as ever, loaded with scents of garrigue, smoke and saddle leather. Those are backed by ample dark-fruit flavors, hints of grilled meat and firm, dusty tannins. Drink 2018–2030. (AI) Inner quote mark (5/2017)

92-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Inky ruby. Highly complex, exotic aromas of black raspberry, cherry-cola, blueberry, potpourri, minerals and woodsmoke. Suave, lush and seamless, offering concentrated, palate-staining flavors of black and blue fruits and lavender pastille are braced by tangy acidity. Finishes with supple tannins, an echo of candied flowers and outstanding persistence. (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2015)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Deep ruby. Potent aromas of ripe dark berries, licorice pastille, woodsmoke, game and garrigue, plus a peppery nuance that adds spiciness and lift. Round and fleshy on the palate, offering intense blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that become livelier and sweeter with air. The very long, energetic, sharply focused finish features fine-grained tannins and subtle, lingering notes of dark berries and smoked meat. (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2016)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Steeped plum and blackberry paste flavors form the core, lined with smoldering charcoal and tobacco leaf notes. Reveals a light tarry edge on the finish, which pulls together nicely. A solid effort in this Grenache-hampered vintage. Drink now through 2025. Inner quote mark (2/2016)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark There’s an incredible track record of wines from this estate, even from difficult vintages, aging beautifully. A beautiful wine, especially in the vintage, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Réservée (80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 6% Mourvèdre and the rest other permitted grapes) has more depth and richness than most, as well as classic Pégaü notes of ripe black cherries, peppery herbs, tobacco leaf and hints of bloody meat. Medium-bodied, nicely textured and layered, it doesn't have the length or richness of a top vintage, but it has tons of character and given the track record here, I've no doubt it will have at least 10-12+ years of longevity. (JD) Inner quote mark (10/2016)

90 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Laurence Féraud farms 52 acres of vines spread throughout Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the oldest bearing for more than 100 years. She uses all 13 permitted grape varieties in this wine, fermenting them with their stems and without added yeasts or temperature control, then ages the juice for two years in large, old oak barrels. Her strategy makes for a savory, earthy wine, more redolent of bacon and black olives than fruit. Fine tannins hold the wine firm, even as it heads into gamier territory. Pour it with venison. Inner quote mark (2/2017)

K&L Notes

The blend for the "Cuvée Réservée" is 90% Grenache, fermented in cement vats and aged in large oak barrels for two years. Domaine du Pégaü has been on a roll and this wine is a increasingly great value in traditionally made Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
