"A new development for this estate is the roughly 100+ new acres of Cotes du Rhone and Cotes du Rhone Villages that have been purchased just south of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, roughly 4 miles from the domaine....Now called Chateau Pegau, the wines from here include a white Cotes du Rhone, the Cuvee Lone, a red Cotes du Rhone call Cuvee Maclure and a red Cotes du Rhone Villages called Cuvee Setier." 
-- The Wine Advocate

2012 is the first vintage from this new estate....
2012 Chateau Pegau "Cuvee Lone" Cotes du Rhone Blanc...$15.99
40% Clairette, 30% Bourboulenc, 20% Grenache Blanc and 10% Ugni Blanc
Named “Lône” after the small stream that runs next to the estate, parallel to the Rhône (this term is used to describe small offshoots of the Rhône in the Provencal language).
Tasting Notes: Offers aromas of acacia, nectarines and pears on the nose, with a touch of exotic fruit. Bright and well-balanced on the palate, with a long finish.  Enjoy as an aperitif or with a wide range of fish and shellfish.
