Château Pegau made several wines in their first vintage (2012) and the Côtes du Rhône Villages – Cuvée Setier is the best of them. Named after an ancient measure used for both grain and wine, Setier is a blend of 60% grenache, 20% syrah and 20% mourvèdre,from 35-60 year old vines, planted in stony soil similar to CNDP.
“aged in enamel tanks… is slightly more fresh and focused, with medium-bodied richness, loads of cracked pepper, black fruits and herbs aromas and flavours, and chewy tannin on the finish. It too has outstanding potential and should have upward of a decade of longevity. Drink 2015 -2022” 88-90 points. The Wine Advocate # 209 Robert Parker. This is a great review, given the modest price of the wine.
This wine is very different to the first two. It’s crimson in colour, slightly darker and definitely denser. On the nose it reveals red currants and spice and is cedar city. On the palate ripe blackberry flavours mingle with cranberry astringency – a wonderful combination, interspersed with rich notes of cedar (a typical CNDP characteristic) and chinotto. Structurally it has fine, dry, chewy tannins and a typical French savoury acidity on the finish. It’s a firmer, more structured wine than the first two and you can detect the extra dimension the ‘village’ element adds.
