In 2012, Châteauneuf-du-Pape icons Paul and Laurence Féraud purchased a 100+ acre estate in Sorgues, and renamed it Château Pegau. It is an exceptional terroir situated less than 4 miles southeast of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Loaded with classic Côtes du Rhône fruit and spice, the wines retain the hallmark stamp and identity of Pegau.
Tasting Notes: “Maclura” is a type of Osage Orange tree (also known by the name Hedge Apple). There are many of these trees on the Chateau grounds, inspiring the name of this cuvée. Intense aromas of cassis, blackberry, and spice, with soft, ripe, tannins on the palate and a lingering finish.
Serve With: Enjoy this versatile, food-friendly wine on its own, with red meats (grilled, roasted, charcuterie), or with hearty vegetarian fare.
