Domaine du Pegau Plan Pegau Rouge 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"...The non-vintage Plan Pegau Lot 2009 is a blend of Carignan, Merlot, Syrah and Grenache. It exhibits more beef and texture than previous examples, no doubt due to better raw materials. Chewy and heady with lots of garrigue, pepper, lavender, herb and spice characteristics, smelling this wine is like walking through an open air Provencal marketplace. *Drink this fruity, luscious red over the next several years*."Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

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

Provencal spice, mineral, dense and smooth. Long, beautiful red fruits. Decant - evolves nicely over two hours.

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 i garri... Wine Spectator.
