2019 Domaine du Pegau "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape(1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1581266 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This youthful Chateauneuf has a very complex nose of graphite, raw meat and lilies. With aeration the black-cherry note steadily grows in intensity. Bold, leathery and earthy palate with fine tannins that build steadily on at the extremely long and straight mineral finish. Drinkable now, but best from 2024. Inner quote mark (2/2022)

91-94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Réservée was hard to read and incredibly reductive, which is a trait I’ve never seen from this estate. Black fruits, licorice, and roasted garrigue are all present in this medium to full-bodied, structured, tannic, firm wine. It’s a head scratcher, but hopefully I’ll be able to taste this again next year before it’s released. Given the quality of the vintage, it should be better than this showing.

K&L Notes

Long lauded as some of the longest-living, most traditionally-styled wines in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, these often need decades of cellar time before they're approachable. According to Robert Parker: "One of the bastions of traditionalism in Châteauneuf-du-Pape is Domaine de Pegau, long owned by the Feraud family, and now run by the charming, talented Laurence, who was exceptionally well-schooled by her father, Paul. This nearly 50-acre estate fashions some of the longest-lived, most interesting wines of the appellation. The success they have enjoyed with their estate wines has allowed the Ferauds to branch out with a small négociant operation that includes selections Laurence makes through her contacts in the southern Rhône as well as wines she co-producers with another Châteauneuf-du-Pape name well-known for high quality, Andre Brunel."
