Tasting Notes

"The 2018 Ventoux Terrasses is a normal blend of 60%Grenache and 40% Syrah that was mostly destemmed and brought up in a mix of concrete and stainless steel. It offers a rocking bouquet of black cherries, ground pepper, flowers and violets with almost marine-like hints in its minerality. Medium to full-bodied, fresh focused, pure and with fine tannins. It’s another winner from this domaine."

91 points - Jeb Dunnuck, April 2020

"A welcome return to form, the 2018 Ventoux Terrasses is a floral, herbal and red-fruited version of this unoaked cuvée. It's medium to full-bodied, with ample concentration, velvety tannins and lovely hints of tea and spice on the long finish. It should drink well through 2024 or so."

91 points - Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate, Sept 2020

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.
