Ordered off the wine list at Daniel in NYC - great wine! Parker's 97 note and previous note do not give justice to the current stage of this Chateauneuf! Great nose - spicy and earthy - long finish with notes of fresh fruit. Evolved beautifully over two hours in the decanter and was absolutely decadent with the duo of ribeye and braised short ribs. Phillipe Marchal came by and tasted it a few times and loved it as well - his last bottle.
Pégaü vertical tasting (Graz, Austria): Light ruby, brilliant, fat tears. Cool decadent nose, moss, fruit reference to a Sauvignon Blanc. Medium to slim body, bit flat, fruit rather gone, nearly no noticeable acidity, some tannins. Long finish, tannins fine persistent.
Score: 50 + 3 for optic + 13 for bouquet + 15 for taste + 5 for overall = total score of 86.
