Winemaker Notes

The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Cotes du Rhone-Villages is as good. This medium to full-bodied sleeper of the vintage offers deep berry fruit interwoven with plenty of Provencal herbs, pepper, and lavender. Drink it over the next few years.

The inimitable Feraud family, true guardians of the most traditional style of Provence and several Rhone appellations, is increasingly spearheaded by daughter Laurence, but her charismatic father, Paul, is always on the scene, with her mother, running the office. While Pegau’s expanding production should be carefully watched, the talent is certainly there. Forgetting the estate wines, there are three levels of quality and price, including a new Tetra Pak in a liter package that is quite good. There are also the Selection Laurence Feraud, a negociant line of wines, and a second negociant line-up sold under the moniker Feraud-Brunel, which Laurence oversees along with Andre Brunel. 2007 is an undeniably great vintage for the Feraud wines.
