Rated a Perfect 100 Points by Robert Parker (Wine Advocate)

The 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee da Capo is a monument to old vine Grenache as well as traditionally made Chateauneuf du Pape. Boasting a natural alcohol of 16%, this wine, which was bottled in spring, 2003 because its fermentation was extremely slow, has virtually everything you could ever want in a profound Chateauneuf du Pape. The color is inky/ruby/purple to the rim. The extraordinary nose reveals aromas of kirsch liqueur, new saddle leather, animal fur, Provencal herbs, spice box, licorice, and a salty sea breeze character. On the palate, the wine is enormous, with an unctuosity, thickness, and purity that must be tasted to be believed. Over 95% of this offering is old vine Grenache, and the rest a field blend of ancient vines. Representing the essence of Chateauneuf du Pape, it possesses so much concentration that it is easy to pose the question ... “where’s the tannin?” Analytically, it has very high levels of tannin, but the tannin is barely noticeable given the wine’s exaggerated wealth of richness and power. This is a modern day legend in the making, and despite its precociousness and ease in smelling and consuming, it will not hit its prime for another decade. It should last for 25-30 years, and take its place among some of the greatest Chateauneuf du Papes ever made. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2030+

Rated a Perfect 100 Points by Jeb Dunnick

Wine simply doesn’t get any better than the 2000 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Da Capo and it is a profound, absolutely stunning bottle of wine. A blend of 95% old vine Grenache and the rest a mix of allowed varieties, it possesses jaw-dropping, massively complex aromas of garrigue, mature dark fruits, cigar, spice box, and roasted meats on the nose. While the nose is mature, the palate is still youthful and fresh, showing a full-bodied, powerful texture, loads of concentration through the mid-palate, and ripe, sweet tannin on the blockbuster finish. While this should continue to shine for another decade (or more), I would not hesitate to start cracking bottles as this is in a great spot. Simply an awesome wine that I wish every Châteauneuf-du-Pape fan could taste.
