Domaine du Pegau
Domaine du Pegau於17世紀便已成名，在Pegau這個名稱之前為Domaine Feraud，直到1987年酒莊主人的女兒Laurence Feraud學成返家與父親連手經營酒莊，酒莊正式更名為Pegau，開始生產一系列驚人表現的頂級的酒款，是目前Chateauneuf-du-Pape產區最炙手可熱的頂尖的名莊之一。
Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Laurence 2008
Just hitting the market, the 2008 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Laurence is
one of the candidates for the wine of the vintage. Copious aromas of
charcuterie, smoked duck, Chinese hoisin sauce, kirsch, black currants and
black tea jump from the glass of this dense, full-bodied, rich, concentrated,
impressive wine. It should be close to full maturity when it is released given
the quick evolution of the 2008s, and will last for 10-12 years. Robert Parker Score:94

1994 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape
Robert Parker Score:90
The 1994 seems less successful than my early tastings indicated. The high percentage of Mourvedre (40% versus the normal 30%) has given it an earthy, leathery character with hints of mushrooms and tree bark. Although dense and chewy, it remains tannic and firm. It will keep for two decades, but it is not a hedonistic example and how much pleasure it will provide remains to be seen.
1997 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape
Good deep ruby-red. Spicy aromas of black cherry and bitter chocolate; the 40% mourvedre component gives this wine unusual freshness for a '97. Silky but bright on the palate, with leather and game nuances adding complexity to the black fruit flavors. Brisk finish hints at tree bark and leather.
2010 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape
Robert Parker Score:95
Interestingly enough, even though many of the 2010 Perrin et Fils selections from the southern Rhone were scheduled to be bottled right after my visit, the 2010 Beaucastel had already been put in bottle. This is a gorgeous wine, a classic blend of 30% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, 10% Counoise and the balance the other permitted varietals in the appellation. Deep purple, with loads of bouquet garni, beef blood, blackberry, kirsch, smoke and truffle, this wine is full-bodied, rich and showing even better than it did last year. I still think it needs 3-5 years of cellaring, and it should last for 25-30 years, as most of the top vintages of Beaucastel do.
