Pegau Côtes Du Rhone Villages “Cuvée Setier”
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.
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.
