The Provençal Pleasures of Château Pegau

As many of you will know, we at Gauntleys have had the honour of working with the wonderful team at the historic and illustrious Domaine du Pegau, for close to 40 years. Since our wine-importing inception we have remained fervent proponents and admirers of Pegau’s uncompromising traditional wine-making style (a throwback to another era when keeping grape stems for fermentation and long barrel ageing was the norm). Pegau is old school wine making at its finest. Run by the tenacious and driven Laurence Feraud, the Domaine is widely regarded as one of the finest producers and biggest names in the region. They craft some of the Rhônes most complex and concentrated wines, which exhibit a real essence of Provençal garrigue.

With today’s ‘Château Pegau’ special offer mixed case, we would like to showcase a selection of the wonderful Côtes du Rhônes of Château du Pegau: a separate branch of the Domaine, run by Laurence, based outside of Châteauneuf and which specialises in Côtes du Rhônes and CDR Villages.

Back in 2012, Laurence purchased a 41-hectare estate belonging to an old dilapidated Provençal farmhouse, located in Sourgues on the banks of the Rhône, a mere 4 miles south-east of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The proximity meant that the terroir was very similar to that of Chateauneuf: sandy soils with large rounded pebbles (Galets Roulés). They named the estate Château Pegau, and thus began a real passion project for Laurence, who is always looking for new and exciting challenges. She saw amazing potential in the terroir here to craft fantastic Côtes du Rhône and CDR Villages, that would rise above much of the market, and offer people the opportunity to delight in Pegau’s wines at a more, for many, approachable price. The wines truly deliver, capturing the essence of Pegau’s eminent style and quality, whilst being loaded with classic Côtes du Rhône fruit and spice, and offering great value for money and approachability in their youth.

Containing a red, a white and a rosé this mixed case aims to offer a well-rounded representation of the lovely range of styles and wines produced at Château Pegau, and to cover all of the bases when it comes to your wine drinking needs! Whether you are already familiar with the wines of Pegau or not, if you are a fan of great Côtes du Rhône, don’t miss out on these esteemed offerings from Laurence Feraud.

2021 Pink Pegau

With this cuvée Laurent set out to craft a rosé with much more character than the typical swimming pool rosés that have flooded the market. Aiming for something that was both elegant and full of Southern Rhône character, we feel she definitely succeeded! A blend of 70% Cinsault, 20% Grenache and 10% Carignan. It has a spicey salmon dress, a unique colour to the Rhône and lovely nose filled with peach, gooseberries, redberries and strawberries. It has a medium bodied and elegant palate, that is rounded with nice freshness and density of fruit. The flavours present on the nose shine through on the palate, with hints of citrus, and a gentle backing of pepper, spice and herbs. Drink as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to dish such as cod in a cream sauce. It will also pair well with vegetables in a creamy sauce.

2020 Côtes du Rhône Blanc ‘La Lône’

Made from Clairette 40%, Bourboulenc 30%, Grenache blanc 20%, Ugni Blanc 10%, this is a refreshing and refined, white CDR. Clean and fresh on the nose with nectarine stone fruit and white flowers and an endearing scent of honey suckle. Lovely clean palate, delivering fresh acidity, good vibrancy, harmoniously balanced and beautiful long finish. Perfect to be drunk right now.

2019 Côtes du Rhône Rouge ‘Maclura’

This is a Charming and characterful Cotes du Rhone Rouge, from deep loamy soils mainly covered in Chateauneuf style round pebbles (Galets Roulés), which captures the essence of the garrigue. A blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault, the 2019 Cotes du Rhone Cuvée Maclura is a dark-fruited wine loaded with pure blackcurrents and raspberries and backed up with notes of black pepper, black alives and expresso. Sturdy and savory in character, it's medium to full-bodied, admirably concentrated and intense, with an elegant and supple mouthfeel, and well-balanced juicy tannins. Clean and long on the finish. It’s in its prime for drinking right now and will go perfectly with grilled or roasted red meats and dried meats. Serve at around 17°C.
