Fun summer party wine. A little more complex than I expected. My non- wine drinking friends LOVED it.

The 2004 Pesquie Terrasses, a blend of 70% Grenache that is 60 years old and 30% Syrah that is 30 years old, all aged in barrel, is an amazing wine for an astonishingly low price. Deep ruby/purple with notes of truffle, tar, blackberry, and cassis, the wine is vibrant, full-bodied, lush, and ideal for drinking over the next 4ndash;5 years. It is nearly too good to be true, and many people familiar with wine in that price range will be absolutely amazed by its sheer concentration and character, so be prepared.

External Review

The Ventoux apellation is essentially a Cocirc;tes du Rhocirc;ne sub-region. The wines, consistent with the southern Rhocirc;ne style, are produced mainly from Grenache and Syrah. Chacirc;teau Pesquieacute; is composed of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah. Helped along by 14% alcohol, the Grenache shows a typically strong red raspberry liqueur element. But the blend also brings pepper spice, black fruits and a ripe plum flavor. Medium bodied, clear and bright, with a refreshing purity of fruit, this wine represents real authenticity of place and grape. A great dinner wine with food compatibility rating as one of its top assets. Good concentration and lingering flavors.

External Review

The 2001 Les Terrasses is a remarkable offering from importer Eric Solomon, who personally put together this 9,000 case blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah, all from vines over thirty years of age. Approximately one-third of it spent time in barrel. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by sumptuous aromas of black fruits, spice, earth, and dazzling purity, and tremendous texture, this high-class, serious Cocirc;tes du Ventoux is supple enough to drink now yet possesses all the stuffing needed to age (possibly improve) for 4ndash;6 years. Amazing stuff!

External Review

Another of my favorite estates in the up-and-coming Cotes du Ventoux appellation, Pesquieandrsquo;s inexpensive 2009 Terrasses is a custom cuvee put together by American importer Eric Solomon. Composed of 70% Grenache (from 60-year-old vines) and 30% Syrah (from 30-year-old vines), aged in neutral oak, and bottled unfined and unfiltered, this 10,000-case cuvandeacute;e hits every sweet spot on the palate. Tasting more like a Chateauneuf du Pape than an inexpensive Cotes du Ventoux, this dense ruby/purple-colored wine offers up scents of licorice, black cherries, raspberries, pepper, and meat juices. Medium to full-bodied with a structured, well-delineated mouthfeel, good freshness, a heady finish, and firm, but well-balanced tannins, it should drink nicely for 2andndash;3 years.

External Review

Dark red color, with a nose blossoming into jammy berry aromas set off by a touch of spice. The well-structured, powerful mouthfeel with elegant tannins is enhanced by slightly woody licorice notes. Long finish.

External Review

The 1995 Cuvée des Terrasses is an unfiltered offering made from 55% Syrah and 45% Grenache. The wine offers a bold, flamboyant, spicy, peppery, black raspberry and cherry-scented nose, delicious, juicy, fleshy-textured flavors, excellent purity, and a heady, glycerin-infused mouthfeel and finish. About 100% of this wine was aged on oak barrels. It should continue to drink well for 2-4 years.

External Review

The unfined/unfiltered 2006 Les Terrasses Rouge, a custom cuvee made for American importer Eric Solomon, is a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah. Its deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by a lovely bouquet of black currants, black cherries, licorice, smoke, roasted herbs, and melted licorice. Deep and full-bodied with velvety tannins, good acidity, and a long finish, this is a heck-of-a wine to drink over the next 4ndash;5 years.
