2021 Chateau Pegau Cotes du Rhone Villages Cuvee Setier
Château Pegau is Laurence and Paul Féraud’s 60 hectare estate, located in Sorgues, less than 6 km from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The wines regularly over deliver, showcasing the estate’s excellent terroir, with the unmistakable imprint of Pegau. Made by Laurence Feraud in the recently built cellar at the estate, the Cuvee Setier is a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Mouvèdre & 20% Syrah.
Totally opaque black dark red colour with a dark red hue. Pepper and clove infused aromas of dark raspberry and red liquorice show good lift out of the glass with some scorched earth and dried meat notes also evident. Amply fleshed, the mid weighted palate is decorated with rich spicy dark raspberry and liquorice fruits which overlay a scorched earth and peppered herb back drop. Sturdy tannins impart a slightly meaty feel. Finishes savoury, dark fruited and pepper laced.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
Lots of cherries, red berries, cola and caramel on the aromatic nose. Medium body with fine, firm tannins and bright acidity. Juicy and crunchy with a peppery edge and a flavorful, focused finish. 60% grenache, 20% syrah and 20% mourvedre. Drink or hold.
