Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Cuvée Réservée 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine announces itself with a deep ruby, purple colour and a huge nose of black fruits. The palate is a complex of dark fruit and spice. The wine is still very tight and young but is striking in its purity and balance. The finish with its notes of liquorice, pepper and minerals is long and eloquent and promises a superb evolution.

At the end of the row the horse waited patiently for the moment when he felt the wooden paniers gorged with grapes weighing down his cart. Once at the winery the grapes were liahtlv Dressed to break the skins - foulé, (the word means literally press by stepping on), the whole bunches were put in trie vats and then the wine-making took place over a period of 15 days. Times have changed, but this traditional style of wine-making is continued today at the Domaine de Pegau. Read less
