Tasting Notes

Vinification
The grapes are crushed and destemmed. We obtain optimal color and aroma after a fifteen days maceration. Traditional wine-making is followed by a long rest. Then the wine is naturally clarified through a series of decanting at select times. 30 % of this vintage is aged in oak barrels (2 to 4 years old) or in oak tanks for about six months. Bottled at the Château.
Tasting notes
Color: deep ruby color.
Nose: intense nose with spicy notes (especially black pepper) and red berries.
Mouth: This very balanced wine offers very round tannins and fresh berries aromas, with some floral and spicy flavors.
Food & Wine pairing
Very easy to match. 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.


Critical Praise

A smoking good 2015 that readers should snatch up is the 2015 Cotes du Ventoux Cuvee des Terrasses, which is 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah that’s aged in a combination of two- to four-year-old barrels and foudres. Medium to full-bodied, polished, silky and with no hard edges, it has classic Southern Rhone notes of Provencal spices, garrigue, licorice and ripe black raspberries. Buy a case and drink bottles over the coming 5-6 years.

The Chaudiere family’s Chateau Pesquié continues to be one of the gems in the Ventoux appellation. Their Ventoux Cuvee des Terrasses is made in decent quantities and is the easiest to find (and it’s a crazy good value), but don’t miss a chance to taste their other cuvées.
