  • Winemaker Notes Domaine du Pegau is an estate bottler of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, owned by Paul Féraud and his daughter Laurence. Recognized as one of the top estates in Châteauneuf, its wines are considered among the world’s greatest. Though supply is far outweighed by demand, prices remain reasonable for those able to seek out and purchase these wines.
  • Tasting Notes Spicy aromas of ripe red fruit, cassis, toasted herbs, pepper and roasted meat on the nose. Big, rich and fullbodied on the palate, with a long, lingering finish. Excellent with strong cheeses and grilled/roasted meats.
  • Press WS 95
