Tasting Notes

"Longtime readers will know that I love this cuvée, which is year in, year out, one of the great value buys out there. The 2017 Terrasses is even better than the 2016 and ranks with the finest vintages I’ve tasted, matching the stunning 2010. The essence of kirsch liqueur, wild strawberries, and wildflowers flow to a full-bodied, plump, deep, beautifully layered and sexy wine that has medium to full body, ripe tannins, notable minerality, and a great finish. A blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah that was all destemmed and brought up in concrete tanks, this is a raw, naked expression of this fabulous terroir located just south of Mount Ventoux."

The Producer

Chateau Pesquie

Château Pesquié, which sits northeast of Avignon within France’s Rhône Valley, looks and feels like a place that has produced fine wines for ages. Lined by centuries-old, leafy plane trees, the drive up to the estate leads to a noble, 18th-century stone farmhouse surrounded by gurgling garden fountains fed by natural underground springs. Behind the house begin the manicured old Grenache vines. About 250 acres of organic vineyards spread over the foothills of Mont Ventoux, known as the “Giant of Provence,” its landmark, wind-whipped, white limestone peak reaching to more than 6,200 feet. How could they not make great wines here? Indeed, Pesquié has received more than a dozen 90-plus-point scores for its Syrah- and Grenache-based reds and Roussanne-Clairette whites. Fresh, exuberant and fruit-driven, these are some of the best examples of today’s Ventoux AOC bottlings.
