1998 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Reservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #996627 96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Sporting awesome aromatics, the 1998 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée is filled with grilled herbs, blood, meat, leather and stunning, spicy Grenache fruit notes that literally come jumping out of the glass. The palate doesn't disappoint is smooth and integrated with full body, fantastic richness and superb length. This knockout wine is drinking at point and has at least 5 to 10 years to go. Inner quote mark (8/2009)

96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark One of the riper, more exotic wines of the vintage, this gushes with black currant, fig and blackberry fruit, all of which has melded together and is starting to show a corrupt edge, while the sweet bacon, spice, mesquite and clove-studded blood orange notes fill out the background. The long, very juicy finish is multilayered and supported by fresh acidity. (JM) Inner quote mark (9/2007)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A classic version of this cuvee that's drinking at full maturity, the 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee offers lots of bouquet garni, cured meats, orange blossom and garrigue to go with a killer core of sweet kirsch and blackberry-driven Grenache fruit. Balanced, full-bodied, seamless and sexy, it's doesn't get much more Pegau than this. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2015)

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Warm red-ruby color. Kaleidoscopic nose of sappy cherry syrup, game, licorice, animal fur and espresso. Liqueur-like flavor of maraschino cherry firmed by underlying minerality. Huge, mouthcoating back end throws off notes of black cherry, tar, minerals and roasted herbs. A Chateauneuf with extraordinary chewiness, breadth and length. This wine aged in foudre for its first two years, and then went into pieces; it was bottled only this past September, nearly four years after the harvest. (ST) Inner quote mark (1/2003)
