2021 Chateau Pegau Cotes du Rhone Lone Blanc

2021 Chateau Pegau Cotes du Rhone Lone Blanc...$19.99
40% Clairette - 30% Bourboulenc, 20% Grenache Blanc, and 10% Ugni Blanc
"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.

Pegau Cotes du Rhone

These are actually hard to get Cotes du Rhone wines!
They do not make a lot and they are very sought after!

  • Grenache 60%
  • Syrah 20%
  • Mourvèdre 10%
  • Cinsault 10%
A pretty complex nose of cherries, berries, dried herbs, cola and baking spices. It’s medium-bodied with finely grained tannins. Round and juicy with a bright core of cherries and some chocolate undertones towards the finish. Balanced and delicious with a vivid finish. Drink or hold.
Rated 92/100 James Suckling

Only 350 cases imported
  • Grenache 60%
  • Syrah 20%
  • Mourvèdre 20%
A step up, the 2020 Côtes Du Rhône Villages Cuvée Setier offers more purity and elegance, with a great nose of ripe darker, almost black fruits, pepper, leather, and herbes de Provence. This medium-bodied, pure, seamless, terrifically balanced 2020 is perfect for drinking any time over the coming 7-8 years.
Rated 91/100 Jeb Dunnuck

A cuvée offering a concentrated nose of cassis, licorice, black cherry and tar, with ripe, well-structured tannins, intense fruit, and a long, lingering finish.  A food-friendly wine that is especially good with bold, flavorful red meat preparations such as pepper-rubbed steak and lamb tagine.

It's Margarita Season! Check out this Bargain Triple Sec!


DuBouchett Triple Sec Liqueur 1 LITER...$6.99 on sale (reg price $8.99) 
Triple sec is a popular orange-flavored, clear liqueur featured in your favorite, indulgent cocktails including cosmopolitans, mai tais, Long Island iced teas and margaritas; while a pervasive product no doubt, most recipes call for just a small amount of triple sec, thanks to its bright and bold flavor.

Like many French liqueurs, triple sec was originally designed to be a digestif, something indulgent to sip neat after dinner or with dessert, but today, it’s most often combined with popular cocktail recipes to deliver a hardy punch of citrus flavor.

This is a multi-purpose essential for any at-home bartender, at a great price!

Rockwood Lump Charcoal

Back in stock and Forsyth for the long weekend

Rockwood Lump Charcoal...$21.99 / 20lb Bag
It is currently the number #1 rated hard wood charcoal on the

100% Missouri hardwood charcoal.
When we poured the charcoal out onto the ground for sorting, we all hardwood charcoal with nothing that shouldn't have been there. As you can see from the following chart, the distribution of sizes was exceptional with the percentage of chips and dust falling below 5%. This is very low compared to all other charcoals we have tested. The bag contained almost an extra pound of charcoal, so we ended up with almost 20 pounds of usable charcoal.

There was no sparking or popping when lighting the charcoal in a chimney starter and the fire was somewhat slow to spread. The smoke coming off the charcoal during lighting was very mild, as mild as we think we have ever noticed.

During our maximum temperature test, the charcoal burned at just over 900° which is high compared to other brands we've tested. Again, the fire was rather slow to spread and build up to the high temperature it achieved.

When it came to burn time, this charcoal came in as the fourth longest burning lump charcoal we have ever tested. The ash produced was very low compared to other brands.

You get a charcoal that doesn't over power the food, allowing you to control the smoke flavor yourself with chips or chunks, and a charcoal that burns a good long time producing little ash and delivering good value for money. This charcoal gets our Highly Recommended rating.

“Opaque ruby. Smoke-accented aromas of ripe dark berries, pungent flowers and vanilla, along with a hint of white pepper that adds spicy lift. Concentrated, expansive cherry liqueur, blackberry and fruitcake flavors become more energetic as the wine opens up. Round, well-knit tannins frame the appealingly sweet finish, which hangs on with impressive, dark fruit-dominated persistence.”
