Pegau Cndp Cuvee Reservee 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): "Pale yellow. Spicy melon and citrus pith aromas are brightened by stony minerality and white flowers. Vibrant and sharply focused, with racy lemon and white peach flavors and excellent mineral bite on the back. This wine, a blend of 60% grenache blanc, 20% clairette and 10% each of bourboulenc and roussanne, never goes through malolactic fermentation. 91 points."

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

An approachable, medium bodied wine with loads of cherry fruit, light peppery notes and a touch of Châteauneuf funk. - Winery

Inky violet. Ripe blackberry and candied cherry on the nose, with lively minerality and fresh flowers adding complexity. Juicy red and dark berry flavors are impressively deep but lively, with silky tannins adding grip. Becomes creamier and lusher with air, finishing sweet, broad and very long. The blend, according to Laurence Feraud, is about 86% grenache, 9% syrah and the rest others.
