2016 Domaine Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee John Livingston Learmouth "yellow robe with a pale rim; the nose is sturdy, square, based on brioche bread with a note of orange marmalade, sea salt. The palate is traditional, grounded, a little dumb; it holds good glycerol-based content, is well couched, ends with a firm squeeze. There are citrus, orange zest threads along the palate that perk it up. This is good, has character, is a superior 2017 for la table. Decant it." 77; Mixed Case, 69.3; Case, 65.45
