Château Pesquié Rosé Blend Côtes du Ventoux Rosé Terrasses 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Les Terrasses is a remarkable offering from importer Eric Solomon who personally put together this 9000 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 flowers. Full-bodied and opulent with good underlying structure dazzling purity and tremendous texture this high-class serious Cotes du Ventoux is supple enough to drink now yet possesses all the stuffing needed to age (possibly improve) for 4-6 years. Amazing stuff!
