The Thief

Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee A Tempo Blanc 2020

Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee A Tempo Blanc 2020

Light and clear gold in color, the Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée a Tempo Blanc has aromas of white flowers like honeysuckle, peach, jasmine and tea. Lively, mineral, and dense middle mouth with length.

Pairs well with pasta and scallops, lobster and various shellfish cooked with cream and truffles.

Blend: 33.3% Clairette, 33.3% Roussanne, 33.3% Grenache Blanc



Now from bottle, the 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape A Temp is another incredible white that offers an almost Riesling-like sense of minerality. Giving up lots of pear, orange blossom, honeyed brioche, and sappy herbs, it's medium to full-bodied on the palate and has incredible purity, integrated acidity, and great finish. It's certainly a bigger, richer wine compared to the more steely 2021, but it doesn't give an inch with regard to purity, precision, or balance. - 98pts Jeb Dunnuck


Structured, crisp and streamlined in style, the 2020 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc Cuvée A Tempo features notes of toasted grain and barely ripe pineapple. Medium-bodied, it's a blend of Clairette, Grenache Blanc and Roussanne that—like so many great wines—has improved during its élevage. My estimate for its aging potential may even prove to be conservative. - 94pts Robert Parker


Matured for 18 months in a combination of old oak barriques from Guigal's Hermitage Blanc Ex Voto as well as concrete and ceramic eggs, the 2020 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Cuvée A Tempo unfurls in the glass with honeysuckle, acacia, yellow apple, pear, lime, white peach, melon and a pinch of honey aromas. Medium to full-bodied and dense, it is delicious to drink now and will continue to evolve for a few more years. Only 1,500 bottles produced. - 94pts Vinous
