"A heck of white, the 2021 Côtes Du Rhône Cuvée Lone Blanc"Jeb Dunnuck
Self-confidently funky, full-bodied dry white that might remind some of high-end sauvignon blanc or others of dry riesling. Concentrated and well structured, this has plenty of drive, though not that much fruit. Long, crisp finish with plenty of spring-meadow character. Drink or hold.
Rated 92/100 James Suckling
Château Pegau is a family owned Châteauneuf-du-Pape label, owned and managed by the iconic winemaker, Laurence Féraud. The château is located in exceptional terroir, situated less than 4 miles southeast of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Named “Lône” after the small stream that runs next to the 100+ acre estate and is an offshoot of the Rhône River.
