Château Pesquié Edition 1912m 2018

Ventoux, Southern Rhone, Rhone Valley, FranceÉdition 1912m is a nod to Mont Ventoux, standing 1912 meters above the sea and said to be the last real mountain of the Alpes chain, and commonly referred to as the Giant of Provence. My first look at this wine revealed a super fresh, red-fruited affair dusted in garrigue, and ready to drink. Bright red berries mixed with violet notes and southern French wild herbs makes an intriguing and elegant glass of wine. Ventoux is one of the coldest areas of the southern Rhone, and the freshness in this wine reflects it. The blend is close to 70/30 grenache /syrah, but there are traces of cinsault and carignan in the mix. The vinification is in stainless and concrete tanks for fifteen days, and none of the wine sees oak. Perfect for pizza, it will also perform well with charcuterie, meat pies, empanadas and chicken salads. There is fine value here.Tasted: 12 August 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 22.00 private wine shops AB 17.49 private wine shops ON 17.95 LCBO QC 15.70 SAQ Producer: Château PesquiéDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
