Chateau Pesquie 2016 Cotes du Ventoux Cuvee des Terrasses
Southern Rhone Valley France
Jeb Dunnuck 91 Rating
A year in, year out no-brainer is the Terrasses cuvee from this estate, and the 2016 Ventoux Terrasses is no exception. A blend of 70/30 Grenache and Syrah, it offers a terrific perfume of black cherries, wild herbs, dried flowers, and spice. This gives way to a plum, sexy, beautifully textured red that has surprising minerality, medium-bodied depth and richness and fine tannin. I finished a case of the 2005 just last year, and it was still going strong, so while there’s no need to cellar bottle, it will keep nicely for 7-8 years.
Must be ordered.
Buy this one by the 12pk for $13.00 bottle
