Pegau Cotes du Rhone Village Setier 2021
Domaine du Pegau is owned by the Feraud family, who have 21 hectares of top quality vineyards in the famous southern Rhone appellation of Chateauneuf-du-Pape as well as 25 hectares of Cote du Rhone Village vineyards, 5 hectares of Cote du RHone and 19 hectares of more humble vineyards that go into vin de table wines. The name Pegau was created in 1987 by Laurence Feraud, when she had finished studying wine and returned home to work with her father, Paul, in winemaking. The 2016 was such an outstanding vintage that many critics globally have described it as vintage of the century; as in, possibly the best in the past 100 years.
We agree. We have been lucky enough to taste and enjoy a vast number of 2016 southern Rhone Valley wines - and they're worth snapping up as these beauties highlight the strengths of this great but under rated wine region. They provide great pleasure now and will continue to for many years to come, for those with wine cellars and willpower.
