DOMAINE DU PEGAU CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE - 2004
14% alcohol. A blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre.
Dusty, cooked meat and sweet fig on the nose. On the palate there's cherry, plum, licorice, tar, tobacco, blackberry, black and white pepper...yes the list goes on. This is a complex wine with just about everything you want from a CDP.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
A phenomenal wine with tremendous depth. Graced the top of WS Top 10 list in 2007 for all the right reasons. When CDP comes together it really is a sensational wine. There are a lot of them out there that miss the mark, but this one is something special. Believe the hype. Retails for around $75.
