2019 Domaine du Pegau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée Blanc (750ml)15 17 0 0
" I think Laurence Feraud is producing some of the most compelling white wines in Châteauneuf du Pape. The 2019 Cuvée Réservée (white) may be her best one yet."
- Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate)
"When it comes to traditional Châteauneuf du Pape, no one does it better than Domaine du Pégaü’s Laurence and her father, Paul Feraud. This estate refuses to make any concession to modern winemaking techniques and the wines are absolutely loaded with Provençal notes and characters...As I’ve said in the past, it’s almost impossible to have too much Pégaü in the cellar!" - Jeb Dunnuck
Only about 4,000 bottles are made of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée Blanc. It is a blend of Clairette 60%, Grenache blanc 20%, Bourboulenc 10% and Roussane 10%.
"Pegau's 2019 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc Cuvée Réservée is almost Burgundian in character, the way it balances upfront generosity with mouthwatering length. The flavors are different, offering hints of crushed stone, underripe pineapple, white peach and dried spices, then this medium to full-bodied wine adds vaguely chalky textural elements on the long finish. Silky and streamlined, it does a wonderful job of preserving freshness throughout." 95 points - Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate, Sept. 2020)
