Domaine du Pegau

Pégaü was created in 1987 when Laurence Féraud went back home to help her father at the vineyard after her wine studies. Pégaü means a wine container used by the French Popes in early times. Today it is one of the most well-known “Châteauneuf du Pape” producers. Robert Parker ranked this vineyard as one of the best 150 vineyards worldwide, and one of his favorites.


The winery has 3 types of top tier quality wine; they are Cuvée Réservée, Laurence and Da Capo. Cuvée Réservée is made by destemming the grapes, slightly removing the grape skin and fermentation for 10-15 days. The fermented juice is aged in big oak barrels for 18 months followed by blending with wine of different varietals then bottling with a total production of around 60,000 bottles. Laurence uses the same proportion of various grapes as Cuvée Réservée but with longer barrel ageing and smaller production than Cuvée Réservée. As for Da Capo, the process is similar but it is only bottled under exceptional vintages (1998, 2000, 2003, 2007 and 2010) with all 5 vintages receiving 100 point scores from Robert Parker.


Owing to the fame and prestige of Da Capo, it was chosen to be the “3rdApostle” by the comic “Les Gouttes de Dieu”, which is a very popular comic book in Japan, Taiwan and Shanghai… Its name continues to grow and it has became a hot item for wine collectors in Hong Kong.
