Critical Acclaim

SP93 Wine Spectator Jun 30, 2009

"Ripe and very packed, delivering fig, macerated currant, bittersweet cocoa, roasted chestnut and tar notes. The long finish flows nicely, with lots of buried garrigue and incense hints carried by fresh acidity. Drink now through 2027." (93 pts.)

ST94 Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar Jan/Feb 2009

"Saturated red. Impressively complex scents of red and dark berries, cherry, leather and garrigue, with smoky minerals and dried flowers adding interest. Juicy raspberry and blackcurrant flavors pack serious punch and are seriously concentrated but there’s a real elegance to this wine. Licorice and candied flowers echo on the long, sappy finish. This looks to be as good as the superb 2005 today." (94 pts.)

RP92+ Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st Oct 2008

"As for the Domaine du Pegau estate wines, the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvée Reservée was tasted from multiple foudres, and appears to be better than the 2005 and 2004. The 2006 exhibits gamy, meaty, new saddle leather, kirsch liqueur, black currant, pepper, lavender, and spice notes. The wine is full-bodied, rich, deep, and long. One foudre, which may become a Cuvée Laurence, appears to be of the same quality as the Cuvée Reservée, but the Laurence will be bottled much later than the Reservée, which was about to be bottled at the time of my visit in late August." (92–94 pts.)

RP94 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Oct 2010

"The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservée shares a similar meaty, gamy character intermixed with abundant notes of kirsch liqueur, ground pepper and Provencal herbs, sweeter tannins than the 2005, a voluptuous, full-bodied mouthfeel, and a long finish. The fruit seems sweeter and I would not be surprised if the 2006 has higher alcohol than the 2005 (although all top vintages here tend to be in the 14.8–15.6 range). This big, rich, impressive effort will age effortlessly over the next 20–25 years." (94 pts.)

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
