This approachable, medium-bodied red bears a famous name: Laurence Féraud of Domaine du Pégau who has composed a wine of 65% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and10% Carignan – the balance being a kitchen sink blend of Mourvèdre, Merlot, Alicante, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Sourced from numerous Southern Rhône vineyard sites – including some near their famous Châteauneuf-du-Pape holdings – Plan Pegau has loads of up-front cherry fruit and a hint of pepper on the finish. Unfiltered, this wine will pair well with game, stews, or grilled meats.
