The bottled 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee is as compelling as I thought it would be after tasting it last year. A blend of 85% Grenache with the rest Syrah Mourvedre and small dollops of the other authorized varietals this wine tends to come from the estate's holdings in the eastern sector of Chateauneuf du Pape. The opaque purple-colored 2009 exhibits magnificent rich berry fruit intertwined with cedar Christmas fruitcake licorice charcuterie roasted meats smoked duck kirsch blackberries and god knows what else. It is an amazingly complex rich full-throttle wine that reminds me somewhat of what the 1990 tasted like in 1994/1995. It is a magnificent Chateauneuf du Pape. If you are looking for the garrigue component it's also there.

Dark and dense with stunning espresso warm ganache and roasted plum aromas giving way to layers of black currant braised fig and licorice root. The long grip-filled finish is framed by a strong roasted mesquite edge and a lingering note of brick dust. A wild wine with loads going on. Just needs cellaring to round into form. Best from 2015 through 2030. 6170 cases made.-J.M.

Still in foudre at the time of this tasting the 2009 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée is reminiscent of the 1999. Showing a huge aromatics of garrigue saddle leather roasted herbs and meat as well as a solid dose of brett (don't say I didn't warn you) this medium to full-bodied rich layered wine should be a benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and have 15 or more years of longevity.

Prices for this estate’s wines have skyrocketed, but there is no doubting the quality in the bottle. The 2009 Cuvée Réservée is a huge wine, overflowing with intense black cherry and plum flavors to the point of seeming a bit sweet. Yet it’s all framed by strong yet softly dusty tannins that should see it age well for at least 15 years.

Wild, highly aromatic bouquet of dark berry liqueur, cherry pit, smoked meat and garrigue. Deeply pitched black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors are broad and sappy, with a smoky floral quality appearing on the back. The long finish features gentle tannic grip and lingering smokiness. Fans of old-school Chateauneuf are going to love this wine. -- Josh Raynolds

This vintage showcases Pegau's identifiable bouquet of sour cherries and horse saddle. With medium weight the palate displays the classic grenache flavors of wild sauvage cherries while refreshingly tangy acidity combines with other spicy flavors and tannins to create an intriguing finish. Very traditional.
