Château Pesquié Red Rhone Blend Côtes du Ventoux Terrasses 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Much ado about terroir, the rsquo;98 Pesquie is, in short, the flavor of a vineyard. Nicely balanced, no one component stands above another. So relax, enjoy the view from the balcony overlooking the vineyard, the sights, the sounds, and the smell of earth, wind, and well, in a wordhellip; terroir!

One of the top estates in the Cotes du Ventoux, Pesquie has been a project for importer Eric Solomon (who creates these custom cuvées for the American marketplace). There are 8,000 cases of the 2004 Cuvée des Terrasses, a blend of 70% Grenache (60-year old vines) and 30% Syrah (30-year old vines), that is aged in barrel (40%) and tank (60%). This knock-out value is a terrific bistro-styled, food-flexible offering with a huge spice and fruit profile. Smoky, roasted herb notes intermixed with black cherry jam, currant, plum, and spice box aromas jump from the glass of this medium to full-bodied, richly fruity red. Displaying a seamless integration of acidity and tannin, it should be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years.

An amazing effort from one of Cotes de Ventouxrsquo;s up-and-coming superstar producers, this non-oaked cuvee made from 60% Grenache (60-year-old vines) and 40% Syrah (40-year-old vines) boasts a dense ruby/purple color along with a fabulous nose of melted cassis intermixed with a touch of Provenccedil;al herbs and tomato skins. Also offering abundant glycerin, full body, and a pure, thick, juicy finish, this is an awesome wine for the price. Moreover, there are 7,000 cases available. Drink it over the next 3ndash;4 years.

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 4-5 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.

The Ventoux apellation is essentially a Côtes du Rhône sub-region. The wines, consistent with the southern Rhône style, are produced mainly from Grenache and Syrah. Château Pesquié 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.

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 4-5 years.
