Without a doubt, Domaine du Pegau is one of the top reference point estates for traditionally made Châteauneuf du Pape. Run with incredible talent by Laurence Feraud, with her father Paul never far away, this estate has produced a superb 2012, one that has some similarities to their brilliant 2010, albeit on a slightly softer scale.
One of my favorite wines, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Réservée is a classic. Beautiful on the nose, with notions of ground pepper, wild herbs, minerality and smoked plum and dark fruit, it’s medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and has plenty of tannin that comes through on the finish. Similar in style to a lighter-weight 2010, drink this beauty anytime over the coming 12-15 years. Rating: 94 points; Jeb Dunnuck in Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
