Sunday, June 17, 2012 - Bought this bottle to see if it makes any sense to pull the trigger on some low pre-arrival prices ex chateau. Nice, simple Pegau, correct for the variety and the domiane. Raspberry, sous bois, medium- acidity and tannin with a medium length finish. Nothing offensive, nothing terribly memorable compared to other recent vintages. Went well with grilled lamb. Ready to go right now, and have some doubts as to long term ageability.
Day 2: savory elements remain with just a smattering of red fruit. The trademark Pegau terroir is there among other meaty elements, sort of a delicious broth flavor. This is actually pretty darn good at this stage, and is worth another point as a result of better than expected holding potential. 14%
