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: Aromas of peach, apple and nectarine, with light floral notes and a touch of minerality. Clean, crisp and fresh, with great acidity.

Serve With: Excellent with savory cheeses and fish/shellfish (especially dishes such as bouillabaisse).
