2000 Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee da Capo - 100 pts!
The 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee da Capo is a monument to old vine Grenache as well as traditionally made Chateauneuf du Pape. Boasting a natural alcohol of 16% this wine which was bottled in spring 2003 because its fermentation was extremely slow has virtually everything you could ever want in a profound Chateauneuf du Pape. The color is inky/ruby/purple to the rim. The extraordinary nose reveals aromas of kirsch liqueur new saddle leather animal fur Provencal herbs spice box licorice and a salty sea breeze character. On the palate the wine is enormous with an unctuosity thickness and purity that must be tasted to be believed. Over 95% of this offering is old vine Grenache and the rest a field blend of ancient vines. Representing the essence of Chateauneuf du Pape it possesses so much concentration that it is easy to pose the question ... "where's the tannin?" Analytically it has very high levels of tannin but the tannin is barely noticeable given the wine's exaggerated wealth of richness and power. This is a modern day legend in the making and despite its precociousness and ease in smelling and consuming it will not hit its prime for another decade. It should last for 25-30 years and take its place among some of the greatest Chateauneuf du Papes ever made. RP
