I'd gladly share this fine Southern Rhône white with my neighbor. :)

Château Pégau 2014 Cuvée Lône Côtes-du-Rhône ($19.99)

A pleasant earthy-chalky note pops up first in the aroma of this clear, brassy-gold wine on the first sniff, perhaps a signal of time spent on the “lees” of yeast after fermentation. It soon gives way to delicate floral notes and a whiff of stone fruit. Overall the aroma is complex and interesting, but more delicate than powerful. Peach and apricot become a bit more evident along with palate-cleansing acidity in the fresh, tart and dry flavor, but it’s subtle minerality that hangs on in a very long, clean finish. Just 12.5 percent alcohol in a well-balanced Rhône blend of 40% Clairette, 30% Bourboulenc, 20% Grenache Blanc and 10% Ugni Blanc. U.S. importer: Hand Picked Selections Inc., Warrenton, Va. (May 6, 2017)

FOOD MATCH: It’s fresh and food-friendly, a versatile match with poultry or mild vish, cheese, egg or vegetable dishes. It was fine with roasted spring asparagus with dill and pepper-scented goat cheese.

Hi Harry,

This week I had another bottle of the Midbar Semillion 2009. Its still lively, offering generous amount of lemon and lime as the predominant fruit notes. It went well with Sabbath meals that were somewhat lighter than usual.

Best Regards,
