Chateau Pesquie Terrasses Ventoux 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Following on the heels of the outstanding 2010 and 2011, the 2012 Château Pesquié Côtes du Ventoux Terrasses is up there with the best vintage of the cuvee to date. Comprised of 70% Grenache (60-year-old vines) and 30% Syrah (30+ year-old vines), aged 6-8 months in 40% new oak barrels, it is essentially declassified Quintessence and comes from hillside vineyards lying between 840-930 feet in elevation. Bottled unfined and unfiltered and transparent ruby in color, it offers up a gorgeously pure, supple, and seamless profile with kirsch and berry styled fruit, licorice, and spring flower like qualities all emerging from the glass. Elegant, forward, and delicious, it gains in stature in the glass, is ridiculously textured from such an inexpensive wine, and has sweet tannin emerging on the finish. Buy this thrill ride of a Côtes du Ventoux by the case and enjoy bottles over the coming 3-5 years...92" RR 10/12

A touch leafy on the nose then filling with dark raspberry/blackberry aromas along with lovely spicy, herbal base notes and a touch of licorice. Showing a hint of flesh on entry, this fills out gently in the mouth with soft tannins and good supporting acidity supporting clear and fresh red currant and blackberry flavors. There’s a little inherent sweetness to the flavors and a touch of lingering richness on the finish, which remains packed full of fresh fruit flavors and is decidedly long. With some herb and mineral notes adding complexity on the palate this is a wine that should please all tastes, though the fruit might be a bit much for some. 88pts
