Domaine du Pegau 2009 Cuvée Réservée Red (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $111

Prices for this estate’s wines have skyrocketed, but there is no doubting the quality in the bottle. The 2009 Cuvée Réservée is a huge wine, overflowing with intense black cherry and plum flavors to the point of seeming a bit sweet. Yet it’s all framed by strong yet softly dusty tannins that should see it age well for at least 15 years.

Domaine du Pegau 2010 Cuvée da Capo Red (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

  1. $500

This is a full-bodied, amply tannic red with an incredibly long, silky finish. It’s also rather animale in style, boasting intense leather and beef jerky aromas and flavors that are smoky and meaty, while hints of liniment and horse tack grow stronger toward the finish. One to try—if possible—before committing to a purchase.

Domaine du Pegau 2010 Cuvée Réservée Red (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $65

At the moment, the 2010 Réservée is intense but moody, showing a smoky, gamy, feral side. The fruit is subdued but concentrated, picking up multiple earthy, spicy nuances including iodine and licorice. It’s a big wine, with chewy tannins that leave the impression of fine suede behind on the long finish.Give it another five years in the cellar.

Domaine du Pegau 2008 Cuvée Laurence Red (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

  1. $113

Boasting notes of dried flowers and herbs in its bouquet, this is a silky, elegant rendition of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. There’s a sense of wet-stone minerality, along with notes of dried black fruit and dark chocolate. Licorice comes through on the lengthy finish.

Domaine du Pegau 2012 Château Pêgau Cuvée Maclura Red (Côtes du Rhône)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $22

The aromas of cracked peppercorns, iodine, blackberries, crushed stone, dried spices and black olives are practically intoxicating on their own. Then, on the palate, you can taste the intensity, with firm tannins that come from a patch of 50-year-old vines in Sorgues. Drink this blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault from 2017–2025…

Domaine du Pegau 2006 Cuvée Réservée Red (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

  1. $108

The 2006 Pégau is built along almost Burgundian lines: It’s not a rich, beefy blockbuster, but instead offers very framboise-like aromas and red-fruited flavors that are at once crisp, spicy and silky. Drink it over the next 7–10 years.

Domaine du Pegau 2011 Cuvée Réservée White (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $70

Pegau’s rare white Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a blend of 60% Clairette, 20% Grenache Blanc, 10% Roussanne and 10% Bourboulenc. Despite being full bodied and viscous on the palate, there’s no sense of heaviness—the wine’s aromas and flavors of barely ripe melon, anise and honeyed citrus seem to float on the palate, ending in a mouthwatering finish.
