Food Pairings for Château Pesquié Red Rhone Blend Côtes Du Ventoux Terrasses
2009 was great, I would purchase a case of this.
This wine showed rich red fruits, yeasty baking bread and pepper on the nose. Juicy raspberry but not much else on the palate and a little dry on the finish. In comparison to the previous vintage, this wine falls short on both body and depth. Very drinkable and good for the price but not a repeat purchase for me.
It's fine, but it came in second to a Ventana Rhone knockoff in blind tasting. I liked it better at first, but it's a little less layered than the Ventana, and not a long finish. It didn't open up a lot after decanting and sitting, either, which is why the Ventana beat it out in the end. There's a lot of good stuff in the price range ($12) so I probably won't go out of my way if this is what it's like in supposedly the best year ever for the Rhone.
Binny's - $12/bottle
Raspberry and cherry, mostly. Nice, not very complex, but I think a good value at under $12. Should be even better with a little more time.
Not a bad buy at 12 clams, but pretty simple in flavor profile. Nice to see some acid in this ripe year, but the body of this wine seems a bit thin to hold it.
Simple, but friendly - expect to meet all the berry basics of a nice Rhône. Great for drinking without food.
External Reviews for Château Pesquié Red Rhone Blend Côtes Du Ventoux Terrasses
One of France's best values year after year. The 2011 offers up notes of blueberries, cherry liqueur, licorice and spices. This full-bodied red hits the palate with velvety texture and bold fruit. Vivid and pure!
Color: dark red color. Nose: intense nose with notes of black berries and spicy aromas like pepper. Mouth: This medium to full-bodied wine is still yet very fresh and elegant and allies unctuous tannins to flavors or red and black berries with a touchspice.
Opaque, ruby core. Very aromatic with fresh blueberry, violet and Eastern spice notes. Still a baby on the palate, with sweet, primary fruit wrapped in a silky, robust texture. Stiff tannins on the finish speak to the age-ability of this syrah-domina... Devon Magee. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2010 Pesquie, Chateau Quintessence 750ml

There is evidence of vine cultivation at Ch teau Pesqui that dates to two thousand years ago. The recent discovery of a pottery workshop and wine pottery from the Roman era (30 BC) in the C tes du Ventoux Appellation confirms that the region is one of the oldest wine producing areas in France.
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.
One of the top estates in the Cotes du Ventoux, Pesquie has been a project for importer Eric Solomon (who creates these custom cuveacute;es for the American marketplace). There are 8,000 cases of the 2004 Cuveacute;e 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 2ndash;3 years.
Pesquie is the best estate in the Cotes-du-Ventoux, this wine is named for the latin term for terroir and is a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah. There are aromas of jammy berry with a touch of spice, the palate is medium-bodied with power and lush tannins. The finish has cherry, black currnt notes with a little more spice.Robert Parker from Wine Advocate gave the 2010 Pesquié Terrasses *94 points* and called it: "One of my all-time favorite producers in France, is a phenomenal bargain. This wine is absolutely stunning, and the best one they have made to date, and is a brilliant showcase for what looks to be another great vintage in the southern Rhône. A blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah, with 65% aged in tank and the rest in old barrels and foudres, it is bottled unfined and unfilteret for the American market. Its stunning dense bluish/purple color offers up notes of sweet blueberries, black cherry liqueur, licorice, incense, and hint of hot rocks (almost gravelly, in the Bordeaux senses), but the wine hits the palate with amazing texture, succulence, fabulous fruit intensity, vivid purity and a vigorous, long, fresh finish that goes on past 30 seconds."Waiting for the 2011 ratings
