2008 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Cuvée Réservée, Domaine du Pégau
A classic Pégau style, with soft-skinned hedgerow fruits melding with smoky, savoury notes on the nose. More streamlined than opulent on the palate, this is not a heady Grenache-led wine, but more restrained. Cool, focused and linear in style, there is lovely fruit, terrific elegance and vibrancy. The Pégau hallmarks of leather and liquorice are discernible on the finish. It is easy to see why winemaker Laurence Féraud is proud of her 2008s; this is long, elegant and reminiscent of the 2004.
