Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape BLANC Cuvee Reserve

2019 Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape BLANC Cuvee Reserve....$67.99
Lowest price on Wine-Searcher is $69.99
Pegau's 2019 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc Cuvée Réservée is almost Burgundian in character, the way it balances upfront generosity with mouthwatering length. The flavors are different, offering hints of crushed stone, underripe pineapple, white peach and dried spices, then this medium to full-bodied wine adds vaguely chalky textural elements on the long finish. Silky and streamlined, it does a wonderful job of preserving freshness throughout.
The bottled cuvées available to taste this summer included three white wines and only a single red. That's OK by this taster, as I think Laurence Feraud is producing some of the most compelling white wines in Châteauneuf du Pape. The 2019 Cuvée Réservée (white) may be her best one yet.
Rated 95/100 The Wine Advocate
