Ch Pegau Cuvée Setier 2015

Red

France

Southern Rhône Valley

Description

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: Offers a concentrated nose of cassis, licorice, black cherry and tar, with ripe, well-structured tannins, intense fruit, and a long, lingering finish.

Serve With: A food-friendly wine that is especially good with bold, flavorful red meat preparations such as pepper-rubbed steak and lamb tagine.
