Community Tasting Notes (125) Avg Score: 94.1 points

  • Deep and dark color, especially for Pegau, concentrated bouquet of horse saddle leather, graphite, macerated berries and garrigue. Palate is soaked with polished tannins and chunky red fruit that carries a sweetness only found in the best of years. Ends medium long. Outstanding showing from one of the most consistent producers in Chateauneuf! Drink or drink later, you won't regret it.

  • Garnet, opaque. Fairly viscous, slow-moving "legs". Pronounced complex aroma of blackberry, black raspberries, plums, burnt wood and coffee all mixed together. Dark, rich, concentrated fruit flavors, mouth-coating, builds on the palate, some anise toward the end, which carries through to the very long aftertaste. Coarse texture, not as elegant compared to Bordeaux. Rustic. This is absolutely outstanding and perfectly balanced. Drinkable now but still has moderate tannin and alcohol and should become a bit softer with another 2-3 years.

  • A monster that will only get better. Not touching another for at least 2 years.

  • This is a monster wine, intense and concentrated. For my tasted it is too early to drink these and I will wait at least 3 years before I open another one.

  • Very good, with excellent delineation and elegance. I expect a lot of depth and complexity from Pegau, but this is much better at a younger age than the 2005 Cuvee Laurence that I had in September. Meaty, spicy, fruity, earthy, herbaceous: you could almost find any flavor you'd like in this wine. I would say hold, but you wont regret ignoring the suggestion.
