Plan Pegau, Lot #2010


Plan Pegau really is not a second wine of Domaine du Pegau.  The inclusion of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are the first clues that this wine includes fruit from non Chateauneuf du Pape sources.  As such, this selectionne of Laurence Feraud includes fruit from Costieres de Nimes.  I did not get any of the so called “Pegau funk” with this bottle.  Instead I was presented with a clean, honest wine which will make for a daily drinker over the next few years.  The flavors did oscillate a bit, at times revealing something interesting, so it could be best to hold off on drinking this until the new year.  This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

NV Costieres et Soleil, Plan Pegau, Lot #2010 – $16
Imported by Hand Picked Selections.  This wine is a blend of 30% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 20% Carignan, 10% Merlot,5% Alicante, 5% Mourvèdre, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cinsault sourced from various sites including estate vineyards and the Costieres de Nimes.  The fruit was whole-cluster pressed then fermented in concrete vats followed by aging for six months in very oak French oak casks.  Alcohol 13.5%.  The restrained nose had hints of spiced fruit and complexity.  In the mouth were flavors of hard red cherries and black fruit.  There was slightly juicy acidity, a clean nature, with a hint of structure being in the form of a dry tannins in the finish.  Everything was in balance with a slightly creamy aftertaste which brought some depth.  It was a little firm and dry.  ** Now-2017.
