Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee 2014  - Last Bottle

Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee 2014

** pats self on back, looks seriously into monitor **

It is an HONOR to offer wines of this caliber. Truly. I mean….PEGAU!! Wazow. We work extremely hard to find established LEGENDS here at Last Bottle on a daily basis. You want some Crustacean Bay California Cabernet or Dulce du Leche Mochaccino Syrah? There are other places for that insipidness. Today, we pay homage to one of the great Chateauneuf-du-Pape producers, made by the force-of-nature Laurence Féraud. 93 POINTS and the most melon-twistingly awesome price you will EVER see. BOOM!! Collectors, this is a no-brainer!

The GLORY of great, classic, legit Chateauneuf is just encapsulated here, in a vintage Laurence describes as “her little Burgundy”. In 2014 the Domaine du Pegau IS like Burgundy….crazily complex, long-lived, extremely layered with all manner of flavors and aromas to percolate your brain and taste buds. YES! Elegant and savory, it’s one of those amazing wines that changes by the minute --- spice box, kirsch, juniper, incense, blackberry extract….then on into sweet herbs, tobacco, earth...really a FUN, FUN ride!! Crazy to see Pegau priced like we have today...PLEASE don’t miss! GET THE GOOD STUFF!

"Always one of my favorite places to visit, Laurence Feraud and her father, Paul (a speed fanatic who raced in on a motorcycle during my visit), conducted a fascinating tasting in their cellars. As value hunters know, several of the low end offerings here are wonderful expressions of Provence that deserve to be taken seriously. Under the family’s negociant label, Selection Laurence Feraud, there are some noteworthy efforts that are well worth checking out. As for the Domaine du Pegau estate wines, I had not yet tasted the 2007 Cuvee Reservee or 2007 Cuvee da Capo from bottle, and when I did, they lived up to all my previous accolades. Here are some in-the-bottle reports on recent vintages of Domaine du Pegau’s Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee, Cuvee Laurence and Cuvee da Capo. I have been buying the Cuvee Reservees since 1979 and the greatest examples include the 1981, 1983, 1985, 1989, 1990, 2003 and the 2007. Not that the other offerings are not high quality, but as Shakespeare said, “Comparisons are odious.
