**100 Points RP** 2003 Domaine du Pegau "Cuvee da Capo" Chateauneuf

About the object

"At present the Cuvee da Capo reveals that extra level of flavour,power,complexity,and richness.It is a big wine (16.1% alcohol - less than in the 1998,but more than in 2000 and 2007) boasting a dark plum/garnet color as well as a stunning bouquet of aged beef,intermixed with pepper,herbes de Provence,and steak au poivre.This unctuously textured,full-bodied Chateauneuf possesses enormous body,huge flavors and sweet,velvety tannins.Still youthful,it has not yet begun to close down,and I'm not sure it ever will given this unusual vintage.It is a modern day classic that should continue to provide provocative as well as compelling drinking for 20-30+ years. (100 Points). Robert Parker. (The Wine Advocate. #191. October 2010). Robert Parker considers that this is possibly the greatest Chateauneuf du Pape wine ever produced:- "Had the 2003 Capo from bottle last Monday at Le Bernadin in NYC (with an exquisite piece of salmon)...might just be one of the greatest CNDPs ever produced...even better than I predicted...can't wait to taste the Cuvee Reservee from bottle...in Vino Veritas". Robert Parker. (Mark Squires' Bulletin Board. March 2006). Wine Spectator awarded the 2003 Pegau Cuvee da Capo 99 Points.
