Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) This word comes from the Latin terras, meaning "lump of earth". The Ventoux region is characterized by alternating hills and valleys. To make the most of this exceptional terroir, vine growers and other farmers had to accomplish the colossal feat of building "terraces" into the steep hillsides. Still today, they are very typical of our landscapes and also called restanques or rébanqués in Provencal. The Chaudière Family chose this name in homage to the terraces their ancestors carved into carefully chosen sites and to the garden of Chateau Pesquie itself
