As I wrote previously, the 2019 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Réservée looks set to rival the best examples of this bottling. Made up of approximately 80% Grenache, with 6% Syrah, 4% Mourvèdre and smaller amounts of other permitted varieties, it's impressively complex on the nose, with scents of black cherries, blackberries and black olives, plus mysterious wafts of violets and garrigue. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, it finishes long and velvety, a sure-fire bet for cellaring. It's gratifying to see wines evolve as expected during their élevage and make it into bottle just as remembered.

The 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Réservée showed better this go-round than last year and has a complex, more classic style in its garrigue, pepper, sweet spice, and assorted red and black fruits. Nicely textured and medium to full-bodied, with ripe tannins, it's going to be a classic expression of this cuvée that readers will love.

Product Description:

Pégau is the benchmark producer of traditionally-styled Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and rank among the greatest wines in the world. The 2019 vintage is only different in the sense that the growing season produced such a concentrated and deep version of the Cuvée Réservée that it may go down in the annals as one of the greatest ever from Pégau, rivaling - perhaps surpassing - the iconic 2009 release.
