Château Pesquié Ventoux Les Terrasses 2018

Ventoux, Southern Rhone, Rhone Valley, FranceThe Pesquié Ventoux red grows at roughly 300 metres on various estate terroirs along the hillsides of Mount Ventoux. The stony limestone soils flecked with iron oxide sands and clays offer up a refreshing wine that is organically grown and will be Demeter certified biodynamic next year. The mix is 60/40 grenache/syrah macerated 15 days and then aged for several months in stainless steel and cement. Expect ripe and fleshy black raspberry, black cherry, mulberry tempered by a mineral crushed stone undercurrent and a clean peppery finish. Again the Pesquié freshness adds to this attractive, round, easy-sipping red that has all the hallmarks of serious Rhone reds, built with an extra dose of drinkability.Tasted: 12 August 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 19.99 BCLS AB 18.99 private wine shops ON 21.95 consignment QC 17.55 SAQ Producer: Château PesquiéDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
