Chateau Pegau - Pink Pegau Rose 2019
Chateau Pegau - Pink Pegau Rose 2019 (87 TSW)
The good weather has returned to the Netherlands with nice temperatures ahead. So this rosé from the Rhone valley is a very good choice.Blend of 20% Grenache noir, 70% Cinsault and 10% Carignan.
The Feraud family of Domaine du Pegau, including daughter Laurence and the father Paul, are fervent proponents of the most traditional wine-making style of Provence and Rhone. It is widely regarded as one of the leading producers in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The property in Châteauneuf is made up of eleven separate vineyard parcels spread throughout the Courthézon,La Solitude and Bédarrides sector of the appellation.
The grapes are harvested manually and are direcly pressed. Fermentation under controlled temperature: 1 month in steel tanks and aging fort wo months in stainless steel tanks.
My tasting notes:
In the glass a bright pink salmon color.
On the medium nose aromas of peach, red berries and strawberries with hints of flowers and spices.
On the palate dry, medium bodied with medium acidity and nice freshness. Flavours are a recall of the nose with a nice medium length finish with citrus hints.
Drink as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to dish such as cod in a cream sauce. It will also pair well with vegetables in a creamy sauce.
