Exhibits a gorgeous mix of damson plum, cherry preserves, fig paste and anise flavors, layered with roasted chestnut and mesquite notes, all framed by a mouthwatering cocoa powder edge. Refined, despite its old-school, grippy finish. Well-built for the cellar. Best from 2012 through 2030. 100 cases imported. -JM

Slightly medicinal aromas of redcurrant, raspberry and garrigue are lifted by a spicy element. Supple, sweet red berry, cherry and floral flavors show very good concentration, and firm acidity gives the wine energy. Lively, mineral-driven floral notes linger on a strikingly long, sappy precise finish. -Josh Raynolds

Perfumed, evolved, and complex, the 2006 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Laurence is a blend of roughly 85% Grenache, with the rest a mix of Syrah, Mourvèdre, Counoise, Cinsault, and Vaccarèse, that undergoes an extended aging of 3-4 years in a combination of small barrels and large foudres. The wine is surprisingly evolved and already open for business, showing a nuanced bouquet of sweet cassis, aged leather, meat, licorice, and garrigue. This leads to a medium to full bodied wine that is all about charm and comfort, showing a round, soft texture, sweet fruit, and an overall approachable, open profile. While this firms up slightly on the finish, and will no doubt evolve and drink well for a decade or longer, I don't see any reason to hold off on drinking these...
