Winemaker's Notes

Dark red with a purple body. Black ripe fruits like morello cherries and raspberries, juniper berries, black pepper and garrigue. After several years ageing, the aromas will be characterised by plums, dried stone fruits, leather, fur and sandalwood. Round, rich and powerful with soft tannins. With time, it will involve into a more complex and spicy wine.

Critical Acclaim

"Wonderfully fragrant and impressively ripe. What Châteauneuf is all about--plenty of wet earth, mineral, plum, sweet tannins and sweet fruit. A cascade of pleasure, full-bodied and long on the sparkling finish."
94 Points

"A powerful, concentrated 1999 Chateauneuf du Papes was produced at Chateau Pegau. The dense ruby/purple-colored 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee boasts a powerful bouquet of pepper, garrigue, black fruits, and earth. Full-bodied and expansive, with sweet tannin giving it a more open-knit, accessible style than most young vintages of Pegau, this is a wine to drink while waiting for the 1998 and 1995 to become fully mature. Like all of this estate's red wines, it was bottled with neither fining nor filtration."
92 Points

"Good bright ruby. Lively, multidimensional aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, licorice, leather, game and dark chocolate. Densely packed but juicy, with notes of licorice and roasted nuts. Very nicely balanced Chateauneuf in an old-fashioned, headspinning style. Finishes very long, with fine tannins. Should be drinkable upon release but capable of developing for a decade or more. Ultimately a bit less thick than the '98 but more refreshing."
