Domaine du Pegau 2014 Cuvee a Tempo

Tasting Notes: 

Pegau’s first white “prestige” bottling! Vibrant, pale gold color. Complex aromas of white flowers, white peach, ripe pear, jasmine, and green tea on the nose. Round and expansive on the pallet, but with great freshness and minerality. Very long on the finish.

Serve With: 

Excellent with flavorful shellfish dishes (like lobster and scallops), especially with prepared with rich elements like cream and truffles…
