Chateau-Pegau Côtes du Rhône Cuvée Maclura 2020
|Region||France, Rhone, Cotes du Rhone|
Born under an Osage orange tree, the Cuvée Maclura Côtes du Rhône calls for the greediness of the fruit revealing a blend of spices with delicate tannins. Designed with respect for the traditions of the south, this cuvée is like our grandmothers' cuisine: generous and full of life. Deep clear red color. Aromas of pure blackcurrant and liquorice. An elegant supple mouthfeel. This wine should be able to age for up to three years. With grilled or roast red meats, as well as dried meats.
The full range of exciting Southern Rhone aromas, from graphite to raw meat to black cherry, pour from the glass of this youthful wine. Concentrated and well structured, but already so accessible, thanks to the well-crafted, fine tannins, this is a standout wine in the humble category. Long, supple finish with savory and spicy notes.
Leading off the Château Pégau releases, the 2020 Côtes Du Rhône Cuvée Maclura has textbook southern France-like garrigue, leather, pepper, and both red and black fruits in a medium-bodied, nicely balanced, charming style. It's perfect for enjoying over the coming 4-5 years.
Baked cherry and cassis overlay warm earth and sweet baking spices in this red, which is solidly structured, with sinewy tannins coming into play and charred alder notes adding to the dark, brooding frame. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Drink now through 2026.
