It has classic Pégau notes of ground pepper, earth, meat, truffle, and blackcurrants as well as medium to full body, good density, building tannins, and a great finish. Laurence compared this vintage to 2005, but I think this 2017 has more density and flesh. It’s a beautiful, classic Pégau that reminds me a slightly toned down 2009. collapse

It's medium to full-bodied, concentrated and rich, with ample length and hints of mocha and licorice on the finish. Not as sexy out of the gate as some vintages, I'd give it another year or two in the cellar, then drink it over the next decade or so. - JC collapse

Here, you find a dark, spicy, ripe, sweet, fleshy, peppery intense wine that develops and expands on the palate. Long, fresh and juicy, the wine is going to require time before it is ready for drinking. . The wine is a blend of close to 80% Grenache along with various other AOC allowed grape varieties.

A highly perfumed nose displays scents of ripe red and dark berries, candied lavender, licorice, smoked meat and white pepper, and a building mineral overtone adds vivacity. Juicy and deeply concentrated yet lively as well, offering alluringly sweet cherry, black raspberry, spicecake and floral pastille flavors that spread out and become livelier with aeration. Closes youthfully chewy, sweet and extremely long, with slow-building tannins adding shape and solid grip. There's no Cuvée Da Capo in 2017, incidentally. -- Josh Raynolds collapse

White roses and grilled pears with hints of grapefruit and lemon blossom. The palate is driven on long, pithy fruit. Really impressive structure. Fresh, lemon and pear flavors to close. Drink or hold.
