The story behind the Domaine de Pegau begins in the late 17th century with our ancestors farming a few small fields of vines bordered with olive and cherry trees. 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

Deep ruby. Seductive dark berry and kirsch aromas are complicated by musky garrigue, black olive and dark chocolate. Dense blackberry and bitter cherry flavors stain the palate and develop a licorice character with air. Tightens up on the long, chewy finish, which is dominated by tangy red berry fruit. This hugely concentrated wine deftly combines liveliness and power.

Ripe and very packed, delivering fig, macerated currant, bittersweet cocoa, roasted chestnut and tar notes. The long finish flows nicely, with lots of buried garrigue and incense hints carried by fresh acidity. Drink now through 2027.

Syrah component, tasted from a barrique: Impressive saturated medium ruby. Ripe, gamey and deep on the nose. Penetrating acidity contributes to an impression of power. From foudre (grenache with a bit of syrah): Full medium ruby. Liqueur-like aromas of red fruits, spices and herbs. At once powerful and creamy in the mouth; really stuffed with ripe fruit. Silky and deep, with sound acidity and big, spreading tannins. The Ferauds worked a trade with a neighboring estate, and will be able to include 20% syrah in the ultimate blend.

Ruby-red color. Ripe, pungent aromas of smoky red berries and plum tinged with rose, lavender and black olive. Sweet and fat in the mouth, with creamy red berry flavors and a strong note of plum liqueur. Finishes very sweet and long, with supple tannins and a lingering impression of dried flowers.

A real powerhouse, with muscular layers of fig and black currant compote, backed by braised beef, chestnut, tobacco and tar flavors. The long, mesquite-filled finish lets additional bittersweet cocoa and dark fruit notes linger, with lots of garrigue. Best from 2008 through 2025.

Ruby-red. Spicy red fruits on the nose, complicated by tapenade, lavender and espresso. Very fresh and sweet, with energetic red and dark fruit flavors, suggestions of garrigue and supple tannins. Finishes deep and sappy, with a lingering cherry pit note clinging tenaciously.

Component #1: Inky purple. Expressive aromas of black and blue fruits, Asian spices, smoked meat and lavender. Very fresh in the mouth, with lively blackberry and boysenberry flavors, velvety texture and a late note of cracked pepper. The smokiness carries through the long, sweet finish. Component #2: Full purple. More energetic than the first sample, with bright raspberry, cherry and floral aromas. Racy and focused, offering sweet raspberry and strawberry preserve flavors and tangy minerality. Gains weight and a smoky, meaty quality on the broad, sweet finish. The final blend should be exceptional.
