Pegau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée Blanc is a white wine made with the Roussanne, Garnacha Blanca, Clairette and Bourboulenc varieties by the Pegau winery in the AOC Châteauneuf-du-pape.
The origins of Pegau lie in the seventeenth century when the Feraud family began planting vines alongside their olive trees. However, they were not wine producers. It was Paul Feraud who began to bottle his wine made from a small plot of 5 hectares in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. In 1987, his daughter Laurence and Domaine Feraud came on board and they became known as Pegau, an old 14th century Provencal term for a jug of wine.
They currently have 22 hectares of vineyards located in different areas of Châteauneuf du Pape, in a total of 11 different plots. Specifically, the Pegau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée Blanc soils are mainly clayey and mixed with limestone with a ferric tendency.
