Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee 1995, 10 bottles

$738$600
Auction: Fine Wines - 3078B Location: Boston Date / Time: February 15, 2018 6:00PM

Description:

Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee 1995
Southern Rhone
u: all 1cm, two vintage neck labels mostly unaffixed, one partially unaffixed, one now reaffixed at lower position, one mostly missing, light wine staining to three labels
"The 1995 Cuvee Reservee exhibits an opaque black/purple color, and extraordinary rich, intense aromas of smoke, black raspberries, kirsch, and spice. Exceptionally full-bodied, with an unctuous texture, and a thick, rich, expansive mid-palate, this superbly concentrated wine appears to be a worthy rival to this estate's phenomenal 1989 and 1990. Interestingly, the average alcohol level achieved by Domaine du Pegau in 1995 was 14.5-15.5%. This is a blockbuster Chateauneuf du Pape. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2020." R. Parker for TWA, 94 pts. 06/96
10 bottles
Provenance: Nantucket Cellar
Estimate $500-700
