    May 17, 2019 - My score is based first and foremost on how great this was to drink with the peasant food I had for dinner over two nights. On the nose, sweet cherry, garrigue, lavender, and some alcohol. Supple in the mouth, moderately sweet, then some spicy tannins and a touch of garrigue linger on the long finish. Think this has hit a peak.

    May 14, 2019 - Clean nose. Sweet cherry fruit, some leather and spice on the finish. A riper style of CdP that won't appeal to everyone. Terrific now- curious to see how this will age given its mellow level of acidity and tannins.

    April 28, 2019 - Consumed over two nights. Pretty and nearing maturity, but not likely to fade for a long time. Mid+ weight, mid acid, 14%.

    April 13, 2019 - Perhaps my favorite wine of all time in this price range. This vintage continues to drink amazingly well.

    April 7, 2019 - Impressive showing. Appeared more advanced than last bottle with a bit of brown on the rim, but not oxidized. This had a lot of spices, leather, and fruit.

    (PEGAU Cuvee Reservee CdP) Pegau

    Dear Friends,

    Tonight's offer does not require a long diatribe or dissertation.

    The more I taste this wine, the more I'm convinced it is one of the finest wines of the 2007 campaign (not surprising). While not as raw as certain vintages of Pegau, it is still produced in a singular style that has become all too difficult to find in the Southern Rhone - one of tradition and reflection. If you are looking for 2007 birth-year wine (a 21st birthday perhaps?), this would be an enticing candidate as the track record is there for spectacular ageing and it will certainly increase in value due to the aura that surrounds 2007 and the eventual rarity that will follow it into adulthood.

    While tempting to drink now, I wouldn't touch a bottle for at least 10 years and preferably 15.

    ONE SHIPMENT ONLY of the 2007.

    This wine has arrived with impeccable provenance:

    Thank you,
