As I said in Issue #5 the 2008 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée is a resounding success for the vintage and one of the top wines. Showing a beautiful focused bouquet of smoked blackberry fruit old leather peppered steak tartare and loads of spice the wine is medium+ bodied on the palate with solid concentration rich yet firm fruit and an excellent finish. This classic beauty should be relatively short lived by Pégaü standards but should nevertheless impress for at least a decade.

I’ve had numerous bottles of the 2008 Cuvée Réservée and continue to think it’s one of the top wines of the vintage. Beautifully perfumed and complex on the nose, with a traditional, old school feel, this medium-bodied, delicious Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a joy to drink. It should easily evolve and drink well for up to a decade, possibly longer.

There's a flash of truffle on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 3300 cases made. -JM

A wild highly expressive bouquet displays red and dark berries Asian spice and musky garrigue accented by smoke and game notes in the background. Juicy and precise with sweet raspberry and cherry flavors that take a bitter turn with air. Tannins come on late and add grip to a long sappy finish.

The nose indicates this is a very traditionally styled wine with its notes of leather cigar tobacco provencal herbs and cinnamon. On the palate the wine is silky and very long with a core of spice and red fruit yet this is definitely not a fruit bomb and the flavor profile is clearly old world. A wine that benefits greatly with air we found this even more beautiful the following day and it will continue to evolve over the next 8 years or more. This would pair well with grilled and braised meats or a perfect match for cassoulet.
