2000 Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reserve
Exactly what I was expecting from this wine: kirsch, herbs, earth, saddle leather and a velvety structure. Lovely winter fare.

Wow! The fuzzy tannins of yore have now been civilized and the mouthfeel is downright silky. Tarry (like an Amador Zin) and mineral-inflected dark cherry fruit with a nicely acidic spine. Unlike some previous encounters, this bottle was not Bretty in the least and bore few signs of the hot year that produced it.
Without question, this was the most appealing CdP I've opened up in a couple of years. It was fresh, food-friendly and lush without any sense of overripeness or heat. I'm glad I have more of it, though I'm unsure whether other bottles will be as good as this one was.
