Chateauneuf du Pape 2011 Cuvee Reservee, Domaine de Pegau
The Domaine de Pegau is a family owned winery. Laurence Feraud has taken over the 50 acre estate from her father Paul and they continue to produce some of the most outstanding wines in Chateauneuf du Pape. This is thier Cuvee Reservee which every vintage is a true triumph. Robert Parker scored it 90-93 and the Wine Spectator scored this 93 points saying "This shows an enticing bay leaf note, with juicy blackberry and black currant fruit up front, followed by melted licorice and a tarry edge on the finish, underscored by a roasted alder accent. This has the friendly, racy fruit of the vintage, with some distinct character to boot. Best from 2014 through 2025."
