Took over an hr to open beyond the damp barnyard nose when the cork was removed. Developed beautifully over the following 2 hrs until the wine blossomed. Very few noticeable tannins and a lovely blend of provincial spices, lavender and hints of leather. A beautiful 30+ second finish. This is one of the first cdp’s I’ve truly enjoyed. I do believe the 99 is likely on its way down but not by any means gone. I’d drink sooner than later. — 15 days ago
Refined and restrained but super complex and dripping with flavor, marrying fruit and earth with subtle tannins and enough acidity for an extremely satisfying finish. — 11 days ago

Chateau Pegau (love this producer) Lone Cote du Rhône White is an interesting blend of Clairette (40%), Borboulanc (30%), Grenache Blanc (20%) and Ugni Blanc (10%). Aromas and flavors of white peach and lemon with notes of minerals, white flowers and herbs. Straw gold color, medium body and refreshing. Long and lingering finish. Excellent! — 3 months ago
Such a beautiful, fruity, spicy, earthy, savory, gamy, Southern Rhône blend from Château Pégau... 🍇 🍷
I love that this wine represents a free expression from the winemaker, who pursued this wine in an unrestricted manner (it’s a Vin de France), given the vineyard location and blends of varieties and vintages involved. It’s made organically.
It’s a non-classified wine which opens the door to creativity and ingenuity. The winemaker @laurenceferaud referred to this wine as a “little brother” of #chateauneufdupape and my goodness I adore it 🥰 👏👏👏
I bought this wine at @sunfishcellars and attended the wine tasting with winemakers Laurence Feraud and @justineferaud moderated by @hoythill2011 🙏🙏🙏
