Yes, bottle size matters!

Pegau 2003

It seems that magnum is not better, but ages much more slower… The first magnum I open from Pégau Réserve 2003, after going through almost 3 cases of the 75Cl version… I’m really amazed how young the magnum tastes compared to the 75Cl sibbling!!  It seems at least 5-8 years younger and deserves at least 5 more years before opening the next magnum!!

2003 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée
From magnum – Beautiful nose of very black ripe cherries, sandalwood, farmyard, still tight and a bit closed, opened up with air… tannins are present, dark cherries, bacon, still painfully young! Wait at least 5-10 years before opening up the next magnum… and finish the 75Cl bottles first! (96+/100 pts.)
