Chateau Pesquie is one of Robert Parker's all time favorite French wine producers, and the Wine Advocate clearly shows the love with three 90+ ratings for the last four vintages. Similar to our offer last week on the 91 point Herencia Altes Garnacha 2012, these highly sought after cuvees are brought to us by importer Eric Solomon. He has the knack of finding these awesome value wines that sell for a song. The 2012 Cuvee des Terrasses is another brilliant example of an elegant and fruit forward wine from Pesquie. The talented brothers Alexandre Frederic Chaudiere took the outstanding growing conditions in 2012 and turned it into a fabulous Rhone style wine. Don't miss it!
Robert Parker"Always a terrific value, the 2014 Ventoux Terrasses is no exception and offers complex, classic southern Rhone notes of dried garrigue, pepper, spice-box, licorice and sweet cherry fruit. These carry to a medium to full-bodied, elegant and balanced red that gains depth and richness with time in the glass, has loads Provencal character and a great finish. Made from a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah that was aged in tank and old barrels, it can last for 7-8 years (I know as I just finished a case of the ’05, which was still going strong at age 10.)"
