2012 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Cuvée Reservée, Domaine du Pegau

As to the 2012s, while there will be no Cuvée da Capo in the vintage, the 2012 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a beauty. Tasted out of multiple barrels (all of which rated between 94 and 97), it should be a classic Pegau with aromatics similar to the 2010. Full-bodied and nicely concentrated, all of the samples showed the freshness of the vintage, with ample mid-palate depth, high quality tannin and loads of character. It should benefit from short-term cellaring and have 15-20 years of longevity.
