    Chateauneuf du Pape 1990
    Cuvee Reservee, Domaine du Pegau
    ocb
    Bottle (12)
    "The huge nose of truffles, tar, super ripe black fruits, licorice, tobacco, and spices is profound. In the mouth there is sweet, expansive fruit, a super concentrated, powerful, tannic taste, lavish amounts of glycerin and body, as well as a finish that lasts well over a minute." (96pts Robert Parker, Rhone Book, Jan 1997)

    "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." (96 pts. Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate #214, Aug. 2014)
