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: Crème de cassis, exotic spices and tobacco and leather aromas on the nose. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, with a long, lingering finish.

Serve With: Excellent with strong cheeses, grilled/roasted meats and dishes featuring complex, earthy flavors (like morel mushrooms).
