Chateau-Pegau Côtes du Rhône Cuvée Maclura 2016
|Region||France, Rhone, Cotes du Rhone|
Starting with the Château Pégau releases, this estate is located south of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, along the Rhône river and is a continuous estate of pebbly, clay and sandy soils. They release a Côtes du Rhône and a Côtes du Rhône Villages, and are in the process of renovating the cellars. The 2016 Côtes du Rhône Maclura is still aging in tank and offers a classic southern Rhône style in its lavender, exotic herbs, pepper, and sweet dark fruits. It has some Pégau charm and is going to be ideal for drinking over the coming 2-4 years.
A pleasant whiff of barnyard lends savory tones of earth and animal to crisp blackberry and plum flavors. It's an opulent, slightly warming wine with a plummy, voluminous mouthfeel that's vibrantly balanced by fresh acidity. The finish is moderately long, lingering on hints of sun-dried thyme, lavender and grippy tannins. Enjoy now-2025.
Distinctive, with frankly ripe plum and blackberry notes that are given a hefty dose of singed alder and bay leaf throughout. Offers a dark, smoldering finish. Has character, but might be a bit heady for some. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Drink now through 2020.
