Chateau Pesquie Terrasses Rouge 2019
Château Pesquié is a family estate located at the foot of the Ventoux Mountain, in the south of the Rhone Valley, gathering three generations of winemakers. With a passion for: unique terroir, hand harvesting, organic practises and biodynamic principles with old vines planted on unique soils.
Deep ruby in colour. Intense nose with spicy notes (especially black pepper) and red berries. This very balanced wine offers very round tannins and fresh berry aromas, with some floral and spicy flavours.
Very easy to match. Pair with simple dishes such as pizzas, kebabs, charcuterie, vegetable pies or salads to more ambitious cuisine like terrines, poultry (guineafowl, turkey…), roasted or grilled meats.
Serve at about 17° C.
“Readers will know that I love this cuvée, which is year in, year out, one of the great value buys out there. The 2017 Terrasses ranks with the finest vintages I’ve tasted, matching the stunning 2010. The essence of kirsch liqueur, wild strawberries, and wildflowers flow to a full-bodied, plump, deep, beautifully layered. This is a raw, naked expression of this fabulous terroir located just south of Mount Ventoux.
