Dm du Pegau Cuvée Da Capo 2016

Red

France

Southern Rhône Valley

Description

Owned by the dynamic father-and-daughter team of Paul and Laurence Féraud, Domaine du Pegau has emerged as one of the most iconic estates in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. A benchmark producer of traditionally-styled Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Pegau’s bottlings are justifiably ranked among the greatest wines in the world.

Tasting Notes: Layers of dark fruit and crème de cassis, black pepper, roasted meat and mineral aromas on the nose. Big, rich, and full-bodied on the palate, with great intensity and concentration and a long, lingering finish.

Serve With: Excellent with strong cheeses and grilled/roasted meats.

Composition

70% Grenache, 7% Syrah, 3% Mourvèdre and 20% other authorized varietals (Cinsault, Vaccarèse, Terret, Counoise, others…)

Viticulture

Sourced from 100+ year old vines from select parcels in La Crau (sandy soils), Les Escondudes (galets), and Montpertuis (galets over red, clay base). Yields of <=2 tons/acre.

Winemaking

Whole grape bunches were lightly crushed and fermented with wild yeasts for 5-7 days in traditional cement vats. This was followed by a further maceration period of 7-14 days, with 1-2 pump-overs per day. The press and free run juice were then aged in 4500 and 3000-liter old, oak foudres for 24 months. The wine was then blended and bottled without filtration.

Alcohol

15.5%
