Description2000 Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Reservee, Rhone, France
Wine AdvocateWhile two bottles of the 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reserve were corked at this tasting, importer Dan Kravitz came to the rescue and provided a bottle (tasted in Colorado) that showed nicely. Fully mature, with a ruby/amber color that shows some lightening at the rim, it offers classic Pegau garrigue, olive tapenade, beef blood and wild herbs to go with a medium to full-bodied, seamless and resolved profile on the palate. It still has a core of sweet fruit and is drinking nicely now, so don’t make the mistake of waiting too long on this. It should be consumed over the coming couple of years.
Wine SpectatorBeautiful traditional Châteauneuf, all built around mineral, smoke, leather and plum aromas. Good balance in this medium- to full-bodied red thanks to the clean, fresh fruit. The tannins are ripe but clamp down on the finish--a wine created for a great steak! Drink now through 2020. 5,000 cases made, 1,250 cases imported.
