Tasting Notes:

94 points "A candidate for “wine of the vintage” is the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee. Pegau did not produce a Cuvee da Capo in 2004, and the Cuvee Reservee has undoubtedly benefited from the inclusion of that stunning lot of wine. A late harvest lasted through the first week of October. Yields were 32 hectoliters per hectare, resulting in an opaque purple-colored effort revealing classic Provencal characteristics of melted licorice, roasted herbes de Provence, sweet blackberry and cherry fruit, and hints of gamy/animal notes and smoke. Meaty, full-bodied, stunningly concentrated and pure, and in need of 4-5 years of cellaring, it promises to be one of the longest-lived wines of the vintage, lasting for a minimum of two decades.
