 Tasted by canan on 5/23/2015 & rated 97 points: Drinking really nicely right now.
Amazing intensity and lots of barnyard style flavors. Impressive balance and acidity. (294 views)
 Tasted by rmcnees on 5/22/2015 & rated 87 points: Son Ryan brought this from his cellar to a family celebration dinner. This was tight and a bit closed with the fruits subdued and overtaken by a layer of black tea, tobacco leaf, with hints of creosote over the black berry fruits. This needs bold zesty bar-be-que to offset the tight firm black fruits and non-fruit layer.

 Tasted by rcl1 on 5/10/2015 & rated 93 points: balanced but the last bottle was better. ? if needs even more cellar time? (1325 views)
 Tasted by rdalehite on 5/8/2015 & rated 90 points: This wine underperformed in my opinion. I know 2003 was a very hot vintage but the wine was almost an Amarone style wine. Deep, very hot, very grape-y, chewy, brooding wine. You could almost taste the texture of the grape skins in this wine. While other 2003 Pegau's were wonderful, this one wasn't as pleasing as I'd hoped. Opened for 30 minutes before drinking then after 1 hour after tasting it started to mellow out and take it's full stride. (1267 views)
 Tasted by Christoffer78 on 4/30/2015 & rated 98 points: Totally magic in a bottle. This profound 2003 Pégaü Cuvée Réservée displays abundant classical Grenache fruit. Kirsch, raspberry, blackberry and sun warm strawberries emerges with some time in the glass. The wine is perfectly mature but still has many years to go in the cellar. The nose in this bottle is as clean as all other 2003s I have tasted. After some time in the glass cinnamon, Asian spice box and tea leaves reveal themselves. The palate is lovely. It is perfectly integrated with a lovely acidity, velvety tannins and a length on the finish which goes on forever. Without a doubt, this is a profound wine with awesome complexity, elegance and power. (score is 98+)

The above tasting note is for the first bottling of this wine. (1679 views)
 Tasted by MayValley on 4/18/2015 & rated 96 points: This wine was just spot on tonight! Nose of truffles, grilled meat, spices, sweet cherries, pepper, a hint of barn and garrigue.
The palate is juicy, with fine and lovely sweet red fruit, spices, not in any way heavy, and with a perfect balance with the fruit just slightly drying out in the end and with the tannins still present.
This should still be good for quite some time, but i cannot imagine it being any better than it was tonight... Only regret is, that i only have 1 bottle left:-( (2267 views)
 Tasted by SimonS on 4/17/2015 & rated 96 points: Took perhaps 1/4 bottle on Monday evening. Put cork back in and bottle in fridge. Remainder of bottle was as good as ever, if not better, on Friday evening. Amazing wine, apparently with many years to go. (2110 views)
 Tasted by mnoljo on 4/9/2015 & rated 93 points: Wonderful nose of underbrush and wet forest. Mid weight but wonderful mix of peper and spice with a long finish (2596 views)
 Tasted by Grinner on 3/29/2015 & rated 94 points: Spring Warm Up Tasting (The Lyon's Tree House): Four hour decant. If you're not into savory wines, don't open this (I'll buy yours!). This has nice fruit (Kirsch, fig, raspberry) but the experience is all about the leather, iron, wet underbrush, licorice, and spice notes that go on and on. Drinking great, has five years easy. (2662 views)
 Tasted by Guy Des Rosiers on 3/21/2015 & rated 93 points: Tasted alongside a 1998 Beaucastel and and 2001 Vieux Telegraphe La Crau, this won hands down. It was young, vibrant, and brimming with life. By comparison, the La Crau was very good but more austere, and the Beaucastel (sadly) seemed over the hill... (2672 views)
 Tasted by stconner on 3/15/2015 & rated 91 points: Decanted over 3.5 hrs and then consumed over the next 90 minutes. It was very tight when first opened so I definitely recommend decanting. Good fruit and some mineralogy on the mid palate and nice finish. (2653 views)
 Tasted by d'Artagnan on 3/6/2015 & rated 91 points: Un vin qui est clairement à maturité, plus fin et moins spectaculaire qu'autrefois. Doux et subtilement épicé, il semble sur son plateau voire au début de son déclin, ce qui est tout de même un peu décevant. Il n'a pas développé de complexité extraordinaire comme il annonçait en jeunesse. C'est délicieux tout de même, simplement en-dessous des attentes élevées. Ce vin a toutefois connu beaucoup de variation selon les bouteilles, alors je ne peux être certain de ce que les autres auront à nous montrer. 91 pts (2625 views)
 Tasted by TexasBob on 3/2/2015 & rated 90 points: Nice dark garnet. Great purity of fruit, with both red and black fruits shining through beautifully in the nose along with cola. Sweet red fruits with vanilla. Apart from that Fairly non-descript, albeit tasty. (2790 views)
 Tasted by jshufelt on 2/12/2015 & rated 95 points: Time to check in again. Pop and pour into a decanter, didn't last very long. In the glass, dark saturated red with the first signs of auburn. The aromatics are exceptional: raspberries, bacon fat, forest floor, currants. Very inviting nose. On the palate, smooth and complex, with equal proportions of fruit, high-toned notes of aging, and beef blood minerality. With a steak, just about perfect. (2604 views)
 Tasted by strickt01 on 1/30/2015 & rated 94 points: Decanted two hours. Seems fairly evolved for its relative youth. However this is not a criticism in so much as it drank wonderfully this evening. Stunning nose of raspberry, barnyard, roses, meat and earth that presented ever-shifting nuances with each new sniff, let alone glass. The palate was equally impressive with some powerful layers of fruit and savour cosetted beautifully by the soft mouthfeel that age confers. Up to now I had been fairly bewildered by the scores given here as the nose had never presented so much complexity and the barnyard aspect seemed overly prominent. Much the most enjoyable of the three bottles I bought and, need I even say it, my last. (2580 views)
 Tasted by SimonS on 1/29/2015 & rated 98 points: This bottle was spectacular (with fillet of lamb). Some browning visible, but nose and palate were both glorious. (2495 views)
 Tasted by IanBlessing on 1/21/2015 & rated 92 points: Very enjoyable, but didn't knock me off my feet as I assumed it would based on reviews. Especially in the nose, it felt slightly muted, possibly just bottle variation. Overall, still a great wine, filled with raspberry, kirsch, loads of current, truffle, barnyard, herbs, and picked up bits of chocolate with air. Paired beautifully with a goat cheese gnocchi. Would like to try another bottle in a couple years. (3097 views)
 Tasted by rcg62 on 1/18/2015 & rated 97 points: Wow wine. Right out of the bottle incredible beautiful light ruby color, with terrific aromas coming at me as I decanted. Nose has spicy blackberries, currant and jam. Delicious stuff. Nice long palate. Really well balanced. I get a (very) tiny bit of heat on the finish, but altogether great. Ready to drink. So sad it's my last bottle! One of the better CDPs I remember.

Note: after another hour in the glass post the above, two thoughts: this is darn close to perfect, and there's enough tannin masking fruit that maybe this still improves after a couple of years. (2773 views)
 Tasted by Paul S on 1/15/2015 & rated 94 points: "Simple" Midweek Dinner - (Imperial Treasure, Asia Square) (Imperial Treasure, Asia Square): Really good – it bore some of the marks of the hot 2003 vintage, but somehow still came across as a very enjoyable, well-balanced CDP. Decanted for 2 hours before serving, this started with a sunny nose of ripe cherries and blueberries sprinkled with bits spice and bramble and garrigue, then notes of dried earth, stone and little nutty accents. A nicely complex nose. The palate was rich, thick and very textured, with fine, powdery tannins framing gorgeous flavours of ripe red cherries and berries along with more savoury tones of meat and earth. dried herbs and garrigue. Lovely – this had tons of complexity and character in the midst of its ripe 2003 fruit. It was beautifully balanced too, with deeply integrated acidity keeping the wine nicely poised. The vintage character showed up again in the slightly drying finish, but even then, it opened up nicely on the backpalate in time to show mouthcoating notes of sweet red fruit, nicely seasoned with herbs and spices. This still has a long future ahead of it, but it was already showing quite nicely with some time in the decanter. This would be interesting to try again in 3-4 years’ time. (1150 views)
 Tasted by UTPK on 12/26/2014: Wow, people are raving about this wine here on CT. Fun to read. My 8th bottle of 12, and it is great now. Very complex and typical nose with thyme, horse manure, dark fruit and some forest floor. It has shed all of its fruit heaviness from 2003 and it is a very well integrated and complete wine today. Has not changed much since last year. Sweet attack and very nice mid palate with great stringent acidity and good length. Will have many years left. I could however never give a CnDP 99-100 points. But I agree that this is as good as it gets in CnDP (apart from Rayas…) (2643 views)
 Tasted by Rmonty on 12/26/2014 & rated 96 points: Decanted 2 hours, garrique, blood, meaty with white flowers and rose pedals on nose. Black & raspberry licorice, with green & black olive. Smoked, cured meats with black truffle & hint of spice box on long finish. On third day, the red fruits opened up. Silky smooth tannins with perfect acidity! Top CNDP I've ever drank! (2944 views)
 Tasted by drwine2001 on 12/24/2014: Whoops, opened instead of the 2001! A fortuitous mistake. Ripe red fruit, some spice, underpinning of licorice, clean and quite long. Not a bit too ripe or exotic. (2746 views)
 Tasted by SimonS on 12/20/2014 & rated 96 points: Great accompaniment to roast goose. Sweetness and depth. No sign of age in this bottle. (2745 views)
 Tasted by jonnyoro on 11/25/2014 & rated 98 points: Consistent again; aging nicely, smoother, more integrated... Violets, garrigue, a little licorice, lovely brambly fruit... A most excellent bottle of wine over and over again... (3804 views)
 Tasted by aknot13 on 11/15/2014 & rated 97 points: Mind blowing! This is indeed the essence of Chateuneuf. (3234 views)

Domaine du Pégaü

Producer website - Read more about Domaine du Pegau

Source: VinConnect (VinConnect.com)
Domaine du Pégau is a beloved icon of traditionalism in Châteauneuf du Pape, crafting wines that dually epitomize the Châteauneuf style of the Southern Rhône while being unmistakably Pégau. Long owned by the Féraud family, the estate is run by the charming Laurence, a Parker Wine Advocate Wine Personality of the Year who was exceptionally well-schooled by her father Paul. Despite receiving six 100-point scores in less than 10 years, Domaine du Pégau is a down to earth specimen of Southern France hospitality.

Pégau produces three high-end Châteauneuf-du-Pape cuvées: the traditional Cuvée Reservée, the special Cuvée Laurence, and the incredible Cuvée da Capo (made from the best grapes in only the best years). These wines are aged in large old oak foudres for at least 18 months in the case of the Reservée, and much longer for Laurence and Capo.

Robert Parker of The Wine Advocate summarizes the house style as follows: “This superb estate fashions an old style, massive, unbelievably rich, rustic Châteauneuf du Pape. If you want to taste what the old style Châteauneuf du Pape of the forties, fifties, and early sixties tasted like, buy a bottle of Domaine du Pégau. They are rich, rustic, sometimes massive Châteauneuf du Papes made with no concession to modern-day tastes.” Furthermore, he continues “I have long been a huge fan of this estate, and have put my money where my mouth is, having purchased all of Pégau’s vintages since 1979.” Heady praise indeed from the world’s leading wine critic.

Domaine du Pégau’s wine have developed a cult-like following among savvy consumers, who adore their expressive style, unique personality and still-affordable prices for the quality and experience they deliver.

“There is a secret in the knowledge transmitted over generations.” — Laurence Féraud

Domaine du Pegau is run by Laurence Feraud and her father Paul.

Red Rhone Blend

Read about the different grapes used to produce red and white Rhone wines
On CellarTracker, Red Rhone Blend is the term for a wine consisting of two or more of the traditional 13 Southern Rhone grape varieties. Typically it's the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre or Cinsault grapes, but can also contain the Muscardin, Counoise, Clairette, Bourboulenc, Picpoul, Roussanne, Terret Noir, Picardan or Vaccarese grapes.


A 'food' wine. Lacking pretension and intended for local consumption with local cuisine. Lacks the 'high' notes on a Bordeaux, more earthy and sharper so often a better partner to meat dishes with a sauce.

RP APPRAISAL OF SOUTHERN RHONE VINTAGES:
WA: 2011 88R / 2010 98T / 2009 93E/ 2008 86R / 2007 98E / 2006 92R / 2005 95T / 2004 88R / 2003 90I / 2002 58C / 2001 96T / 2000 98E

### 2005 ###
In southern Rhone, 2005 was a below average sized crop, because of continuing drought and the fact that there are so many old vineyards where low yields are the rule of thumb even in an abundant year. While 2005 is truly an excellent vintage in the south, I do not believe it is a compellingly great vintage, because it has more in common with beefed up, improved version of 1995 than with what I consider an irrefutably great vintage like 1998, 2001 or even 2000. Certainly the wines have plenty of structure and possess fresher, more vibrant acidities than most years provide. The top wines also display impressive levels of concentration. However all the 2005s tend to reveal a certain firmness, and if the grapes were picked too soon, or the vinification/upbringing were not carefully handled, there is a toughness and austerity to the tannins that ultimately will prove to be problematic. Nevertheless, there is an ocean of top wines.


### 2007 ###
The 2007 vintage in Southern France was wonderful. Here is what controversial Robert M. Parker (Wine Advocate Issue 179) said about it, “Throughout the southern Rhône, 2007 is the greatest vintage I have tasted in my thirty years working in that region. I think of 2007 as a hypothetical blend of an opulent, powerful, sumptuous year such as 1990, and a cooler draught vintage such as 2001. The cool weather and the remarkable three weeks of Mistral in September that concentrated the grapes without any spikes of high heat appears to have given the 2007s an aromatic dimension and freshness that I have rarely witnessed. Combine that with wines that are substantial, powerful, and relatively high in alcohol, with super depth of fruit! These are very aromatic wines of great concentration, freshness, laser-like focus, and amazing purity as well as depth. It is the vintage of my lifetime for this region, and I don’t say that lightly.”

### 2010 ###
Robert Parker, on the 2010 vintage:
"Some producers think 2010 eclipses 2007 because of the wines' vivid freshness and focus. Throughout the southern Rhône, the hallmarks of the vintage are very dense purple, sometimes even blue/black colors as well as higher acid levels that have not been seen since 2004 and 2001. In fact, 2010's paradox is that I can't remember a vintage so concentrated, powerful and rich that also has such zesty acidity. The 2010s will have significant aging potential, which is obvious in the level of tannins, but the tannins are sweet with exceptional elegance and finesse. The ratio of high extractive and phenolic skins to the juice has produced wines of extraordinary intensity, freshness, aromatic potential and obvious longevity. This is another great vintage that offers an embarrassment of riches for this region that has enjoyed a succession of extraordinary years."

### 2011 ###
- "has most Rhône vintners exceedingly optimistic for a third straight outstanding year…" -Wine Spectator
- "fans of fruit-forward, accessible wines will find plenty to like from '11, which looks to be an ideal candidate for restaurants as well as for wine lovers…" -Stephen Tanzer
- “we have got 2011 which is a combination of these two great vintages." -Michel Chapoutier on how 2011 is a combination of the 2009 and 2010 vintage
- The 2011 Southern Rhone Region was Rated 89-92 by Wine Spectator's Vintage Chart!

A first look at vintage quality in French wine regions, with eyewitness reports from growers and winemakers
Posted: November 14, 2011
Rhône Valley
The 2011 harvest has most Rhône vintners exceedingly optimistic for a third straight outstanding year, though a handful rued some late rains and heat that blemished what could have been a perfect growing season.

By Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
2011 and 2010 Southern Rhone Wines
By Josh Raynolds
Jan/Feb 2013
"...fans of fruit-forward, accessible wines will find plenty to like from '11, which looks to be an ideal candidate for restaurants as well as for wine lovers who lack the facilities or patience for long-term storage.
Fans of graceful, fruit-driven Rhone wines will find plenty to like from 2011 and, as was the case in 2008, 2006 and 2004…"

Michel Chapoutier on 2011 in Rhone Valley: A detailed Early Report
26 Octobre 2011
The tastings of the 2011 vintage have recently given an opportunity for Michel Chapoutier to give his first impressions of the quality of this vintage for the appellations of the Rhone Valley. Prior to the presentation of each appellation, he noted that "after a warm and sunny 2009 vintage that resulted in the exuberance of grape varieties, 2010 was a fresher year with slow maturities which generally gave tense wines - to those who were able to wait for the phenolic maturity - some mineral wines, elegant with an outward expression of the soil, we have got 2011 which is a combination of these two great vintages. "
"This 2011 harvest in Rhone Valley was both early and late: a real paradox!"

By Wine Spectator’s Vintage Chart
Southern Rhone
Vintage: 2011
Score: 89-92
Drink Rec: NYR
Description: Warm spring, but cool, wet weather in July and August led to uneven ripening; Indian summer saved the vintage. Grenache is light, but Syrah and Mourvèdre strong, so blending key; there will be some excellent wines, but heterogenous from domaine to domaine.)

Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Appellation - Read more about Chateauneuf du Pape

Vineyards on weinlagen-info

"As I have written many times in the past, the sweet spot for drinking Châteauneuf du Papes is usually the first 5-6 years after the vintage. Then they seem to go through an adolescent, awkward, and sometimes dormant stage, only to re-emerge around year 10-12, where the majority of wines are often fully mature. The best of them will continue to hold on to life (but rarely improving) beyond 15-20 years. It is only the exceptional Châteauneuf du Papes that will evolve for 20-25+ years, and those are indeed a rarity. However, things may be improving dramatically in terms of the longevity of Châteauneuf du Pape, although Grenache-dominated wines, the vast majority of wines produced in the appellation, are wines that do not have the polyphenol (extract and tannin) content of top Cabernet Sauvignons, Merlots, or Syrah-based wines. Nevertheless, the younger generation in Châteauneuf du Pape has taken seriously the farming in the vineyards. There are more organic and biodynamically run vineyards here than in any other appellation of France. The yields, which were already low, are even lower today (20-35 hectoliters per hectare), and of course, the proliferation of top luxury and/or old-vine cuvées gives a significant boost to the number of wines that will evolve past 25 or 30 years. The advantage of these wines is their broad window of drinkability." ( Robert Parker )
