Wine Spectator 95 points - The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee (of which I was lucky to find a magnum on a Paris bistro?s wine list a week after my tasting at the estate) is a brilliant effort that ranks alongside the colossal 2003 Cuvee Reservee. A blend of approximately 85% Grenache, 8-9% Syrah, and the rest Mourvedre and other varietals from 50-100+ year old vines aged in foudre, it exhibits a dense plum/purple color along with a big, sweet bouquet of beef blood, grilled herbs, barbecue smoke, lavender, sweet cassis and kirsch and a hint of Asian soy. The wine possesses a fabulous texture, a full-bodied mouthfeel and a seamless integration of tannin, acidity and alcohol. Certainly the alcohol level is pushing 16% in this wine. With extraordinary texture and unctuosity, this remarkable effort should drink well for 20+ years yet be very appealing in its youth given the glycerin, velvety texture, and remarkable complexity.

Wine maker notes
The creation of our Chateauneuf du Pape draws on cherished family traditions (and a few closely held secrets). After harvest the grapes are carefully sorted, crushed, and fermented between 10 - 15 days. The juice is then aged for 18 months in 50hl old oak barrels and then bottled without filtration. Drink between 3 - 15 years.

The wines are bottled in a distinctive heavy bottle embossed with the Appellation's coat of arms. This guarantees that the wine is that of a proprietaire recoltant, that is to say from a grower that makes his own wine. The label states, Mise en bouteilles au Domaine, Pegau is bottled in the cellars of the Domaine when we feel the time is right. Those who drink our wine know that from vineyard to vat to barrel to bottle it is the exclusive product of the care and passion of Paul and Laurence.
