Château Pesquié Ventoux Terrasses Rouge 2016

Ventoux, Southern Rhone, Rhone Valley, FranceLes Terrasses is usually a 60/40 blend of grenache and syrah with traces of carignan, cinsault and mourvèdre. Only about a third of the juice is aged in oak for about six months, but none of it is new. The style is modern Rhone with ripe and fleshy red and black fruits including raspberry, black cherry and mulberries punctuated with black pepper, bits of resin and tar with a dried herb/garrigue finish. There are tannins, but they are mostly silky. Try this with fire-grilled beef dishes.Tasted: 04 March 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 19.99 BCLS Producer: Château PesquiéDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
