Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Cuvée Réservée 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

roduced from 1 hectare, 2800 bottles. Grape varieties: 60% white grenache, 20% clairette, 10% bourboulenc and 10% roussane. After selective picking the grapes are gently pressed and once the juice has settled it is fermented in a stainless steel tank with careful temperature control. Towards the end of the fermentation the juice is drained by gravity into 4 year old oak barrels where it matures on fine lees until bottling. The wine is clear gold in colour with the best aromas of flowering fruit trees and violets, in the mouth the acidity holds in check the ripeness of the alcohol.

The revenue from the cherries sold in the local provençal markets covered the costs of working the vineyards. The olives and their golden oil were for family consumption, whilst the grapes went into producing the already famous red wine of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The grape picking was family work which took place in an ambience of light-heartedness and fun but with a respect for quality and even then a vigerous selection of the best grapes. At the end of the row the horse waited patiently for the moment when he felt the wooden paniers gorged with grapes weighing down his cart. Once at the winery the grapes were liahtlv Dressed to break the skins - foulé, (the word means literally press by stepping on), the whole bunches were put in trie vats and then the wine-making took place over a period of 15 days. Times have changed, but this traditional style of wine-making is continued today at the Domaine de Pegau. Read less
