Community Tasting Note

    March 23, 2013 - Opened 3hours earlier. Too much sense of animals! But not pleasant at all. 5 persons at table all don't like it. Half the bottle was undrinked. Decanted for one more day, and all the same. So we Opened it too early?

    3/25/13, 9:11 AM - My understanding is that Pegau is very much old-world; I don't believe they de-stem as is done by most CdP these days. For that reason, I think the variability is higher; I've had several 2003 Pegau CdP and they've all been good, but noticeably different.
