Investor overview

Domaine du Pegau makes excellent wine and it has the awards to prove it: a handful of stars from the Guide Hachette des Vins and more than a handful of 100 point scores from critics cements its standing as one of the best producers in Chateauneuf-du-Pape.

Unsurprisingly, then, its prices match its reputation, especially when it comes to the Cuvee da Capo, which is one of the most expensive and in-demand wines in the entire Rhone appellation. Only produced in five years so far (1998, 2000, 2003, 2007 and 2010), and with a small production of just 500 cases per vintage, this wine commands top dollar, although despite all years scoring 100 points from Parker, there appears to be little correlation between vintage year and value. The 2003 has done particularly well, while the 2010 offers a slightly more affordable investment opportunity.

Elsewhere in the estate’s wine portfolio, the Grand Vin – the Chateauneuf-du-Pape Reservee – sells for lower prices than the Capo, but displays strong value growth and similar critic acclaim. The 2003, 2009 and 2010 vintages each received 98 points from Parker, and have enjoyed a steady upward trajectory on the investment landscape.
