1999 Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Reservee, Chateauneuf-du-Pape

Product: PEGR99
Vintage: 1999
Region: Chateauneuf-du-Pape
Bottle Size: 75cl
Grape Variety: Grenache Blend
Maturity: Drink now
A powerful, concentrated 1999 Chateauneuf du Papes was produced at Chateau Pegau. The dense ruby/purple-colored 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee boasts a powerful bouquet of pepper, garrigue, black fruits, and earth. Full-bodied and expansive, with sweet tannin giving it a more open-knit, accessible style than most young vintages of Pegau, this is a wine to drink while waiting for the 1998 and 1995 to become fully mature. Like all of this estate's red wines, it was bottled with neither fining nor filtration.
Score: 92, Robert Parker

Good bright ruby. Lively, multidimensional aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, licorice, leather, game and dark chocolate. Densely packed but juicy, with notes of licorice and roasted nuts. Very nicely balanced Chateauneuf in an old-fashioned, headspinning style. Finishes very long, with fine tannins. Should be drinkable upon release but capable of developing for a decade or more. Ultimately a bit less thick than the '98 but more refreshing.
Score: 92, Stephen Tanzer, IWC

Wonderfully fragrant and impressively ripe. What Chateauneuf is all about--plenty of wet earth, mineral, plum, sweet tannins and sweet fruit. A cascade of pleasure, full-bodied and long on the sparkling finish. Drink now through 2015. 5,000 cases made.
Score: 94, Wine Spectator

Our Tasting Note
Nose: Powerful nose with wild animal fur, wet-earth, sweet plum and blackcherries. You can feel the wild wild west feeling once you get close to your glass.
Palate: Very aromatic on palate, full and powerful bodied, soften tannins, wild, black fruit, wonderful pepper bouquet, earthy, spices and tobacco scents. Lovely long finishes.
