As good as the Beaucastel was, this Pegau was at least equally as good. Totally different style of wine. Red fruited with classic red cherry fruit, kirsch liqueur, licorice and garrigue flavors. Tremendous intensity, voluptuous/velvety texture, and a killer finish. Shows some brett, but I love that about Pegau. Another one that went tremendously well with the lamb, and also my last bottle…although more should be purchased when the opportunity presents itself. Half our table liked the Beaucastel better than the Pegau, and the other half (my wife included) liked the Pegau slightly better. Although that’s like arguing whether Muhammad Ali or Jack Nicklaus dominated their sports more decisively at their peak.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
