Product Overview

The 2016 Château Pégau Cuvée Maclura Côtes du Rhône Rouge is comprised primarily of Grenache and Syrah grown on the property that is located only a short 5 km south of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, and the wine is made using whole-cluster fermentation and native yeast. As such, compared to most Côtes du Rhône, this one is clearly in a higher class. More intensity and depth, plenty of dark fruit, solid structure, and an old-world feel with the mild barnyard, earth, and leather. From a highly esteemed producer, this represents a pretty incredible value for Côtes du Rhône. Enjoy now, or reward your patience by cellaring for a few years.

Varietal Composition: 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 10% Cinsault
Appellation: Côtes du Rhône AOC
Aging: 4-6 months in large oak vats

91 Points, #81 on "Enthusiast 100 of 2018" - Wine Enthusiast
"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." -ALCI, 9/1/18

"A blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Cinsault and 10% Mourvèdre, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Cuvee Maclura was still aging in vat during my June visit. It features outstanding aromas of crushed stone, violets, cherries and raspberries, but it remains a bit tight and tart on the medium-bodied palate; more élevage certainly seems as if it will be beneficial. The wine finishes lively and long." -JC, 10/31/18

90 Points - Wine Spectator
"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. 5,000 cases made." -JM, 10/31/19
