Information
 



This star winery in Rhone "Domaine du PEGAU" was created in 1987, when Laurence Feraud after her wine studies went home to help her father Paul Feraud at the domaine. The property has belonged to the family for several generations. From 1986 Paul Feraud started bottling of wine and sold it under the mark Domaine Feraud. Today father and daughter have made PEGAU to one of the most well known wines of Chateauneuf du Pape and this domaine produces "Parker Point" massively. The domaine owns 21 hectares of vines in Chateauneuf du Pape. 20 hectares are used for red wine grapes and rest is for white wine grapes. The vineyards are composed by 11 different parcels which have different characters. It makes deep complexity to the wine after the blending, and a very distinct true old-fashioned Chateauneuf du Pape is born.

Cuvée Réservée is produced from 85% Grenache, 9% Syrah and 4% Mourvedre, Counoise and tiny portion of other varieties. The wine is vinified in traditional, cement vats, and the wine is aged on average for 18 months in old foudres. Pegau uses a wide range of different old wood fodures. The oldest is close to 90 years of age and was imported from Russia.

The Cuvée Réservée is clearly amongst the top wines from the vintage. This stunning wine instantly opens with seductive aromas of ripe black raspberries and roasted plums, which are woven together with smoke, floral, white pepper, grilled herbs and a hint leather. This continues to impress on the palate with its round, velvety texture, beautiful balance and seamless structure which driven by a lovely core of acidity as it heads into the long, polished finish. Year after year this Cuvée delivers, and this is another outstanding showing to add to the long list. This can be approached early, but this wine has the reputation to age gracefully, and allowing this time to fully evolve will certainly pay off. (International Wine Report)

RP94

The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Réservée is a classic. Beautiful on the nose, with notions of ground pepper, wild herbs, minerality and smoked plum and dark fruit, it’s medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and has plenty of tannin that comes through on the finish. (RobertParker.com)

WS93

A dark, alluring style, with tobacco, chestnut and alder notes surrounding a core of blackberry, plum and cherry fruit. Lots of garrigue details line the finish, showing a warm paving stone hint. Should settle in nicely in the cellar. (WineSpectator)

AG93

Opaque ruby. Heady aromas of black and blue fruits, potpourri and Indian spices, with a smoky element emerging with air. Taut and sharply focused on entry, then fleshier and broader in the mid-palate, offering vibrant boysenberry and black raspberry flavors with hints of candied violet, smoked meat and licorice. Finishes spicy and long, with repeating florality and slow-building tannins. (Vinous/Antonio Galloni)
