A deeper, richer version of the Cuvee Reservee, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee da Capo is one of the more youthful, concentrated wines of the vintage. Coming primarily from the la Crau lieu-dit and over 90% Grenache, aged in an old foudre, its deep ruby color is followed by a bonafide smorgasbord of Provencal aromas and flavors of garrigue, cured meats, incense, beef blood, black currants and pepper. While a full-bodied, incredibly concentrated, rich and unctuous wine, it carries its wealth of fruit and mid-palate density with incredible elegance and purity, with a seamless texture, no hard edges and a finish that won't quit. The 2007 is more elegant and seamless than both the 1998 and 2003, with an incredible sweetness of tannin. Nevertheless, it still needs another 2-4 years of bottle age and will blow your mind over the following 10-15 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

Even more impressive than the Réservée and a noticeable step up the 2007 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée da Capo is one deep dense puppy and yields awesome aromas of cassis and blackberry fruit licorice dry... Even more impressive than the Réservée and a noticeable step up the 2007 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée da Capo is one deep dense puppy and yields awesome aromas of cassis and blackberry fruit licorice dry aged beef and copious stem and garrigue on the nose. The purity and delineation are truly something and the wine has spectacular intensity depth and richness. The palate is full bodied with a pure precise texture perfect balance through the mid-palate and a finish that delivers so much tannin and extract that it's almost mouth-numbing. Give this rock star wine 7 to 10 years in the cellar and then drink over the following 2 decades.

This shows a remarkable marriage of density and grace as layers of roasted fig braised chestnut and dried blood orange stay supple and plush embedded with rounded grip and alluring cocoa graphite and incense notes... This shows a remarkable marriage of density and grace as layers of roasted fig braised chestnut and dried blood orange stay supple and plush embedded with rounded grip and alluring cocoa graphite and incense notes. There's a long espresso- and hoisin sauce-filled finish. Best from 2011 through 2030. 670 cases made. -JM

Inky ruby. Pungent exotically perfumed aromas of dark berry compote Asian spices and garrigue with bright minerality adding vivacity.

Pungent exotically perfumed aromas of dark berry compote Asian spices and garrigue with bright minerality adding vivacity. Powerful and deeply concentrated but also shockingly fresh and lithe offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and notes of candied flowers and licorice. The finish is smooth sappy and extremely persistent with echoing floral and herb notes. -Josh Raynolds
