The Chateau Pegau releases come from an estate located just across the southern border of Chateauneuf du Pape, located along the eastern bank of the Rhone River. The wines are made by Laurence Feraud and they’ve recently completed work on a new cellar at the estate.
Dense black dark red colour with a deep dark red hue that has a subtle black overlay to it. Fragrant black cherry and liquorice aromas have a smoky clove like overlay to them trailed by provincial herb and peppered earth notes. Juicy black cherry and liquorice fruits show medium to full body weight across the palate underpinned by scorched earth, dried herbs and pepper. Ripe chewy mouthfeel with a sturdy tannin structure imparting some firmness to the meaty medium to long aftertaste.
Cellar 4-5 years.
More intense and powerful than its 2016 counterpart, the 2017 Cotes du Rhone Cuvee Maclura is the identical blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% each Cinsault and Mourvèdre. It's full-bodied and firm, with rich tannins and notes of violets, black cherries and crushed stone on the long finish.
Joe Czerwinski - Wine Advocate (Nov 2018)
Not yet bottled, the 2017 Côtes Du Rhône Maclura offers a peppery, meaty, full-bodied style that packs terrific fruit. It has some classic Pegau complexity, plenty of pepper and violet notes, a rounded texture, and is a rock star of a Côtes Du Rhône to enjoy over the coming 3-4 years.
