Description:

Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee 1990
Southern Rhone
u: four 0.5cm, one 1cm
"A big step up, and showing that the warmer, richer years dish out the most pleasure at maturity, the 1990 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reserve is drop-dead gorgeous, and close to my favorite of the night. Possessing a thrillingly complex, mature feel, with full-bodied richness and a layered, textured and seamless mouthfeel, this puppy was singing, with loads of lavender, peppery herbs, game and dried flower-like aromas and flavors. I don't see it getting any better, and would drink it while it still has this voluptuous, hedonistic slant that makes it such a joy to drink." J. Dunnuck for TWA, 96 pts. 08/14
5 bottles
Estimate $600-850
