2005 Domaine Du Pegau

2005 Pegau

The daughter Laurence, who took over managing the property starting with the 2005 vintage, pronounces the name as Pay-Go. Domaine du Pegau Reserve is produced from 75% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre, Counoise and other varieties. The wine is aged on average for 18 months in old foudres, large barrels.

This wine had a middle palate of cork, slight and faint, not easy to detect. I tried the wine the next day and it still had the power, a dense fruit, chocolate, and leather typical of the Chateauneuf du Pape. I give a score to this wine despite the middle palate taste.
