Tasting Notes

"A great success from a challenging vintage, the 2013 Pegau is as aromatic as ever, loaded with scents of garrigue, smoke and saddle leather. Those are backed by ample dark-fruit flavors, hints of grilled meat and firm, dusty tannins. Drink 2018–2030."

"Deep ruby. Potent aromas of ripe dark berries, licorice pastille, woodsmoke, game and garrigue, plus a peppery nuance that adds spiciness and lift. Round and fleshy on the palate, offering intense blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that become livelier and sweeter with air. The very long, energetic, sharply focused finish features fine-grained tannins and subtle, lingering notes of dark berries and smoked meat."

The Producer

Domaine du Pégau

The story of Domaine du Pegau is a classic French tale of history, passion, and artistry… past, present, and future. The Féraud family who owns Pegau have been growing vines in Chateauneuf-du-Pape since 1670, with titles to their earliest vineyards dating back to 1733. But the glass of deep garnet red that sits before me right now, the young and commanding Cuvée Réservée Rouge 2016, is not just telling me a story of the past and of tradition, of grapes from vines that have endured two world wars, of a land that literally sings as if the mistral winds were given a voice. This is modern-day labor of love, handcrafted by the Domaine’s contemporary Ferauds, father and daughter team Paul and Laurence.

After her studies in Paris, Laurence returned to her home full of vision and verve about the future of her family’s famous parcels in Chateauneuf, and shortly thereafter in 1987 what was once a farm that sold grapes to other producers became an estate-bottled Domaine, named Pegau (after the ancient terracotta jugs used in the Pope’s summer residence that gave the village its name).
