Château Pesquié is a family estate located at the foot of the Ventoux Mountain (made famous in the Tour du France), in the south of the Rhone Valley. The wine is named after the ancient terraces hewn into the hillsides on which the vines grow. 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah aged in older oak. Dark and dense with initial Grenache sweet fruits followed by chalky laced spicy Syrah. A wine that Jancis Robison describes as “exciting” and Robert Parker as “Smoking value.”


Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Château Pesquié is a family estate located at the foot of the Ventoux Mountain, in the south of the Rhone Valley, gathering three generations of winemakers. 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."


92/100 Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate (2015 Vintage)
"A smoking good 2015 that readers should snatch up is the 2015 Cotes du Ventoux Cuvee des Terrasses that’s aged in a combination of two- to four-year-old barrels and foudres. Medium to full-bodied, polished, silky and with no hard edges, it has classic Southern Rhone notes of Provencal spices, garrigue, licorice and ripe black raspberries. Buy a case and drink bottles over the coming 4-5 years."
