There are so many reasons to be enchanted by France’s Rhone Valley. Beautiful countryside, incredibly charming villages, the food, and, obviously, the fabulous wine! Every time I taste a wine like this stunning ’14 Pesquie I am immediately transported to a sunny sidewalk café, with plates of saucisson and maybe a bit of foie gras in front of me. And of course copious amounts of vin rouge that hopefully tastes as good as this beauty!
>> 91 points-Wine Advocate: “Chateau Pesquie is without a doubt one of the top estates in Ventoux and the wines are under-priced given their quality. 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, 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.) 91 points.”
