Reply to "2008 Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reserve"

That is awfully black and white. The joy of Chateauneuf is that they reward baby killing AND aging. I have had hundreds of bottles of Pegau both on release and with 15+ years of age. Each is worthwhile. Some vintages shut down, for the example the 2001. However it was utterly GLORIOUS for 2+ years on release. Same with the 2005.

Why should most wine lovers deny themselves that pleasure?

BTW, in contrast, Beaucastel almost never rewards babykilling, except for perhaps the 2000 and surprisingly the 2005.
