Chateau Pegau Lone Cotes Du Rhone Blanc
$166.61 / case(12)
‘the name lone is the name for an offshoot from a main river. For our chateau pegau this is parallel to the rhone river but it flows much slower. Wine making manual grape harvesting with strict sorting of the bucket both in the tractor and in the dumpster. The grapes are pressed and kept in stainless steel tanks. The grape juice is cooled for 24 hours. The grape juice is then racked to remove the lees. The temperature is progressively increased for the clean grape juice to be fermented at 14 c. Following this moderate amounts of yeasts tartric and sulphur are added. The slow fermentation takes place over 12 days followed by cooling and racking. Bottled under nitrogen and air space in march 2013. Tasting note colour: clean and clear bright and with a tinge of gold. Nose: stone fruit like nectarines and white flowers of honey suckle lightly exotic acacia. Palate: fresh acidity and good vibrancy this wine has a long length in balance with its alcohol. Ageing: this wine should be drunk the year after it is bottled. When to drink: as an aperitif or with muscles and shellfish.’- chateau pegau
