    Winemaker's Notes:

    Ancestors of father and daughter team Paul and Laurence Féraud farmed olives, cherries and grapes in Châteauneuf-du-Pape dating back to the 17th century. The methods established centuries ago carry on in the current vintages, creating robust, concentrated, traditional red and white wines.

    Prior to Laurence joining her father in the business in 1987, Paul sold much of the wine to négociants. Paul himself learned the trade from his mother, a self-taught vigneron of local repute, who bottled wines under the family's previous label, Domaine Féraud et fils.

    Comprised of mostly old vine Grenache (80%), the Féraud's Châteauneuf-du-Pape includes all 13 of the regionally allowed grape varieties.

    Critical Acclaim:

    As for the Domaine du Pegau estate wines, the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee was tasted from multiple foudres, and appears to be better than the 2005 and 2004. The 2006 exhibits gamy, meaty, new saddle leather, kirsch liqueur, black currant, pepper, lavender, and spice notes. The wine is full-bodied, rich, deep, and long. One foudre, which may become a Cuvee Laurence, appears to be of the same quality as the Cuvee Reservee, but the Laurence will be bottled much later than the Reservee, which was about to be bottled at the time of my visit in late August.

    Saturated red. Impressively complex scents of red and dark berries, cherry, leather and garrigue, with smoky minerals and dried flowers adding interest. Juicy raspberry and blackcurrant flavors pack serious punch and are seriously concentrated but there's a real elegance to this wine. Licorice and candied flowers echo on the long, sappy finish. This looks to be as good as the superb 2005 today.

    Ripe and very packed, delivering fig, macerated currant, bittersweet cocoa, roasted chestnut and tar notes. The long finish flows nicely, with lots of buried garrigue and incense hints carried by fresh acidity. Drink now through 2027

    Wine Spectator

    The 2006 Pégau is built along almost Burgundian lines: It’s not a rich, beefy blockbuster, but instead offers very framboise-like aromas and red-fruited flavors that are at once crisp, spicy and silky. Drink it over the next 7–10 years.
