Château Pesquié Red Rhone Blend Côtes du Ventoux Terrasses 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

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

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.

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!
