Wine Advocate 95-97 Points "The 2019 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Réservée looks set to rival the best examples of this bottling. Made up of approximately 80% Grenache, with 6% Syrah, 4% Mourvèdre and smaller amounts of other permitted varieties, it's impressively complex on the nose, with scents of black cherries, blackberries and black olives, plus mysterious wafts of violets and garrigue. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, it finishes long and velvety, a sure-fire bet for cellaring."

Long lauded as some of the longest-living, most traditionally-styled wines in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, these often need decades of cellar time before they're approachable. A blend of 13 grape varieties, mainly Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre.

According to Robert Parker: "One of the bastions of traditionalism in Châteauneuf-du-Pape is Domaine de Pegau, long owned by the Feraud family, and now run by the charming, talented Laurence, who was exceptionally well-schooled by her father, Paul. This nearly 50-acre estate fashions some of the longest-lived, most interesting wines of the appellation. The success they have enjoyed with their estate wines has allowed the Ferauds to branch out with a small négociant operation that includes selections Laurence makes through her contacts in the southern Rhône as well as wines she co-producers with another Châteauneuf-du-Pape name well-known for high quality, Andre Brunel."

This youthful Chateauneuf has a very complex nose of graphite, raw meat and lilies. With aeration the black-cherry note steadily grows in intensity. Bold, leathery and earthy palate with fine tannins that build steadily on at the extremely long and straight mineral finish. Drinkable now, but best from 2024.
