2000 Domaine du Pégau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée - France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Châteauneuf-du-Pape (10/13/2018)
Served with some mild Indian food, this was drinking very well, with earthy, leathery tones, alongside dusty red fruit. The texture was silky, and the finish echoed the leathery side of the wine, along with the red fruit and herbs. It was very easy to drink, and I think I will open my remaining bottles sooner, rather than later. Might as well drink it while it’s in such a good place.

Served alongside the 2000, along with some mild Indian food, this was quite spectacular. Fruitier than the 2000, it was also richer in texture, but also mostly resolved, and so drinking very well. There was plenty in reserve, but as I said about the 2000, why not drink it now while it is so delicious.
