Château Pesquié Ventoux Terrasses Rouge

Wine Details



Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) Bottled unfined and unfiltered and transparent ruby in color, it offers up a gorgeously pure, supple, and seamless profile with kirsch and berry styled fruit, licorice, and flower like qualities all emerging from the glass. Elegant, forward, delicious, it gains in stature in the glass, is ridiculously textured from such an inexpensive wine, and has sweet.

    (2005 Vintage) "Chateau Pesquie is the finest estate in the Cotes du Ventoux, a gorgeous area east of Avignon. The best bargain is their blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah, the 2005 Les Terraces. These old vines have produced a deep ruby/purple-hued wine offering notes of licorice, black olives, kirsch liqueur, spice, and pepper. Full-bodied with loads of fruit as well as a generous, savory mouthfeel, it is best drunk over the next several years."

    (2006 Vintage) Another of my favorite estates in the up-and-coming Cotes du Ventoux appellation, Pesquie's inexpensive 2009 Terrasses is a custom cuvee put together by American importer Eric Solomon. Composed of 70% Grenache (from 60-year-old vines) and 30% Syrah (from 30-year-old vines), aged in neutral oak, and bottled unfined and unfiltered, this 10,000-case cuvée hits every sweet spot on the palate. Tasting more like a Chateauneuf du Pape than an inexpensive Cotes du Ventoux, this dense ruby/purple-colored wine offers up scents of licorice, black cherries, raspberries, pepper, and meat juices. Medium to full-bodied with a structured, well-delineated mouthfeel, good freshness, a heady finish, and firm, but well-balanced tannins, it should drink nicely for 2-3 years.
