1999 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée – France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1/7/2011)

Lovely nose of dark fruits with grilled meat and charcoal. Full bodied with flavors of rum soaked cherries, wood smoke, bacon, and a hint of newly tanned leather. Excellent with just pop and pour. (92 points)

1999 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Crau – France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1/7/2011)

Way too young, tart, and tight… not expressing much at this time with just a pop and pour. Sour cherry and a bit of charred wood are peeking out now but my guess is this wine will improve dramatically with a few years and/or hours of air. Unfortunately, circumstances didn’t allow a decant. (88 points)
