Pegau Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Reservee 2015  (#332831)

Grenache/Garnacha from Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Southern Rhône, Rhône, France

Possessing a deep ruby/plum color, beautiful complexity, full-bodied richness, and firm tannin, it has closed up slightly since I tasted it from barrel and is going to need 6-12 months of bottle age to bounce back, but this is a concentrated, powerful vintage for this estate that reminds me a slightly improved 2005.

Vaudieu Chateauneuf-du-Pape Amiral G 2016  (#332898)

[ 99 points Jeb Dunnuck: The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Amiral G. is based all on Grenache and comes from a single plot of very old Grenache vines (all rolled stone soils) that was destemmed and brought up in demi-muids. Just screaming Grenache! at the top of its lungs with its sweet bouquet of black raspberries, candied violets, baking spices, and crushed rock-like minerality, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness and density, a weightless texture, no hard edges, and awesome length. It's a sensational, borderline perfect wine that has everything you want from a bottle of wine. Give it a year or three, and it's going to cruise for 15+. Drink: 2020-2036.
