Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée by Domaine du Pégau 2012

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée

by Domaine du Pégau 2012

Producer : Domaine du Pégau

Region : France (France), Southern Rhône (France)

Bottle Per Case : 12 x 750 ml

Tasting Notes

As to the 2012s, while there will be no Cuvee da Capo in the vintage, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee is a beauty. Tasted out of multiple barrels (all of which rated between 94 and 97), it should be a classic Pegau with aromatics similar to the 2010, yet not quite as much depth or richness. Full-bodied and nicely concentrated, all of the samples showed the freshness of the vintage, with ample mid-palate depth, high quality tannin and loads of character. It should benefit from short-term cellaring and have 15-20 years of longevity. Drink 2016-2032.

The Producer

Domaine du Pégau

The story of Domaine du Pegau is a classic French tale of history, passion, and artistry… past, present, and future. The Féraud family who owns Pegau have been growing vines in Chateauneuf-du-Pape since 1670, with titles to their earliest vineyards dating back to 1733. But the glass of deep garnet red that sits before me right now, the young and commanding Cuvée Réservée Rouge 2016, is not just telling me a story of the past and of tradition, of grapes from vines that have endured two world wars, of a land that literally sings as if the mistral winds were given a voice. This is modern-day labor of love, handcrafted by the Domaine’s contemporary Ferauds, father and daughter team Paul and Laurence.

After her studies in Paris, Laurence returned to her home full of vision and verve about the future of her family’s famous parcels in Chateauneuf, and shortly thereafter in 1987 what was once a farm that sold grapes to other producers became an estate-bottled Domaine, named Pegau (after the ancient terracotta jugs used in the Pope’s summer residence that gave the village its name).
