Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée da Capo 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is a story born in 1998 and re-edited for 2000. It is a return to the symphony of the 13 grape varieties of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, each of which was considered to bring in their own register, a different gustatory note to the wine. (As each note of the partition by the famous jazz composer D. Piestrup is part of the finished song). Selected from the oldest fields where the 13 varieties were always planted side by side, the wine is still in the large wooden casks where it has seemingly stopped its evolution and is giving nothing away. This is often the case with these massive wines. As yet we feel it has only revealed half of its personality, certainly it is powerful, silky and fat with a large palette of fleshy, black fruits and notes of liquorice, which in time will develop into a more complex and spicy bouquet.

The story behind the Domaine de Pegau begins in the late 17th century with our ancestors farming a few small fields of vines bordered with olive and cherry trees. The revenue from the cherries sold in the local provençal markets covered the costs of working the vineyards. The olives and their golden oil were for family consumption, whilst the grapes went into producing the already famous red wine of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The grape picking was family work which took place in an ambience of light-heartedness and fun but with a respect for quality and even then a vigerous selection of the best grapes. At the end of the row the horse waited patiently for the moment when he felt the wooden paniers gorged with grapes weighing down his cart. Once at the winery the grapes were liahtlv Dressed to break the skins - foulé, (the word means literally press by stepping on), the whole bunches were put in trie vats and then the wine-making took place over a period of 15 days. Times have changed, but this traditional style of wine-making is continued today at the Domaine de Pegau. Read less

...High-toned, highly complex nose combines black raspberry, blueberry, currant, animal fur, chocolate and licorice, plus a whiff of lime skin. Superripe, dense and chewy, with a solidity that goes beyond the regular release. Deeply chocolatey, sli... Stephen Tanzer.
