Under the estate Domaine du Pegau label, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee is spending a longer time in barrel and foudre than usual. Consequently, I tasted through three separate foudres, all of which looked spectacular...the powerful nose offers up aromas of licorice, smoked herbs, charcuterie, bouquet garni, roasted meats, Peking duck, kirsch, blackberries and cassis. An enormous success, this cuvee has come on like gang busters since I tasted it last year, and may eclipse the stunning 2007...Could this be a modern day version of Pegau's compelling 1989 Cuvee Reservee?

How you feel about this wine coincides with how you feel about Brett. Not a huge fan of it but this is in the tolerable range. Left to me by a byob table who couldn't deal with the Brett.

Stank on the nose-pretty tight and tannic. Some sweet silky fruit on the back end.

Soft and sexy, touch of Spritz. Def ready to drink, a year or so left.

Dark plum and cherry with intense spice. Powerful, but not overdone.
