Also brilliant, the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reserve is full-bodied and concentrated, with classic Pegau wildness, beef blood, saddle leather and garrigue all emerging from the glass. Slightly lighter in color and weight when compared to the 2003, it’s showing some maturity and can be consumed anytime, but will without a doubt continue to evolve gracefully for another decade or more. - Jeb Dunnuck

The 2001 Pegau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Reservée (magnum) was by far the most reticent and shut down bottle in this flight. Clearly a wine of tremendous potential, it needs time – and lots of it.

Clearly a wine of tremendous potential, it needs time – and lots of it. Hints of smoke, leather, licorice and black olives lingered on the deep, powerful finish.

Superripe utterly captivating aromas of raspberry liqueur leather chocolate coffee bean pepper garrique black olive and licorice. Huge and voluminous with superripe palate-saturating flavors of candied liqueur-like red fruits game pepper and wild herbs with a complicating saline quality. Exotic and larger than life. Wonderfully fat and full on the sweet lush aftertaste. Perhaps a bit less tarry and more fruit-driven than the 2000. This will fill your entire mouth and then some.

Super with ripe plum and blackberry fruit supported by notes of briar brick dust tar and bacony smoke. Rich yet racy with a powerful yet perfumy fruit- and dried herb-driven finish. Shows a lot now but built for the long... Super with ripe plum and blackberry fruit supported by notes of briar brick dust tar and bacony smoke. Rich yet racy with a powerful yet perfumy fruit- and dried herb-driven finish. Shows a lot now but built for the long haul. Drink now through 2016. 5500 cases made. (JM)
