Pegau Reservee 2008Rhone - Frankrig
Rødvin - Grenache/Syrah/etc - 75 cl - 14,5% Vol.
Ikke en "Parker Pegau", da denne 2008 udgave er lettere og mere
burgundisk i sit udtryk end Pegau normalt ses.
Det er dog en super Chateauneuf som Laurence Feraud
(vinmager på Pegau) selv fremhæver som en klassisk Pegau Reservee.
91 Point Robert Parker :
The 2008 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee was about to be bottled at the time of my visit, and it will certainly be one of the better wines of the vintage. By the standards of Pegau, it is not a massive wine nor will it be terribly long-lived. However, this estate has an incredible track record in off years, so I would not be surprised to see this wine exceeding readers’ expectations in 10-12 years. Tasting through the three remaining lots that will be blended together, I rated them between 89 and 92. That makes it one of the better wines of the vintage. Medium to full-bodied, chewy and very evolved, the wine exhibits lots of earth, lavender and foresty/mossy notes intermixed with kirsch, peppery black currants and Christmas fruitcake spices. It should drink nicely for 10-12+ years. Laurence calls it a very “traditional” style that she believes will be as good as their 2006
