WINEMAKER NOTES

Château Pegau is the name of Laurence and Paul Féraud’s newly-purchased 60 hectare estate, located in Sorgues, less than 6 km from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The wines truly deliver, showcasing the estate’s excellent terroir, with the unmistakable imprint of Pegau.

TASTING NOTES

A strong cedar note weighs in on the core of steeped cherry and raspberry fruit, before leaving a rather firm edge on the finish. Pepper and olive notes fill in as well. Frankly rustic.

PRESS

“A step up over the Côtes du Rhône, the smokin’ good 2015 Côtes du Rhône Villages Cuvée Sétier is a medium to full-bodied, concentrated, sexy beauty that’s undeniably Pégaü in style. Peppery herbs, plenty of meatiness, smoke and spring flowers all emerge from this terrific 2015 and it should be snatched up by savvy readers, and consumed over the coming 4-5 years. The blend is 60% Grenache and 20% each of Mourvèdre and Syrah, aged in stainless steel.” – 90 points, Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate 

“Fresh, featuring plum and blackberry notes, streaked with light anise and mesquite hints that linger on the finish. Drink now through 2019. 2,900 cases made, 400 cases imported.” — 89 points, JM, Wine Spectator
