Château Pesquié Artemia 2017

Ventoux, Southern Rhone, Rhone Valley, FranceOne of three single-vineyard wines produced at Pesquié, Artemia is impressive beginning with its deep opaque, purple-black colour. In 2017 the mix was 75/25 syrah/grenache, the latter bringing a fresh floral character to the wine to soothe the bold syrah. It was grown at 1400 metres above sea level on mostly limestone soils, giving the wine a bony undercurrent. There is real power here with perfectly vibrant black fruits dusted in garrigue and flecked with a subtle white pepper note. It’s very pure and, for a minute, Northern Rhone-like. A modern look at high-end Ventoux through an organic/biodynamic lens. Cellar this a decade with no worries.Tasted: 12 August 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
