Pegau Rare Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc

Only a few hundred cases made each year.

2014 Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc...$59.99
An outstanding white, the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc Cuvée Reservée is made from 60% Clairette, 20% Grenache Blanc, and the rest Roussanne and Bourboulenc. Raised all in stainless steel, it offers classy notes of citrus blossom, white flowers and hint of minerality to go with a medium-bodied, beautifully balanced and pure style on the palate. It’s ideal for consuming over the coming 2-3 years.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Advocate

Shows good zip from the start, with fresh pippin apple and fennel notes leading the way, backed by green fig, melon and star fruit flavors. The finish ripples with energy while the fruit plays out. 230 cases made.
