Chateau Pesquie Terrasses Rouge 2020

Chateau Pesquie was equally smitten with their 2020 releases and in particular the Terrases Rouge that they deemed “full-bodied, supple and approachable with a crisp, mouthwatering finish.” Wine Spectator added 90 points for a blend they labeled as “ripe, but with a breezy edge. ” But taking the cake was Wine Enthusiast at 91 points, for an organic wine “framed by sweet spices and a firm stony minerality.” A lot of high praise for a wine that deserves it in heeps. And if that wasn’t enough, this delicious southern French blend, the ideal choice for any BBQ this summer can be had at a bonafide Tuesday Night price.

Original price was: $20.00.Current price is: $17.50.

91 Points, Wine Enthusiast
This is a solid regional example that boasts heady notes of ripe pomegranate and wild strawberries, framed by sweet spices and a firm stony minerality. Certified organic.

90 Points, Wine Spectator
Ripe, but with a breezy edge as damson plum and bitter cherry notes glide through, laced with underlying mineral and floral details. Light kiss of toast on the finish. Grenache and Syrah.

Chateau Pesquie is in the heart of the Ventoux, making some of the very best values in all of France right now. It’s a third generation family-run estate that continues to push the needle in winemaking excellence while also adapting to the changing needs of the environment. The estate, with its 100 hectares planted to vine, has introduced more sustainable farming and winemaking practices and is certified organic and biodynamic.

There are three main terroirs on the property: rocky limestone clay, red clay, and loamy gray clay. To have all three at their disposal is fairly rare, usually you only get one or two, but the combination helps for healthy growth of a diversity of plantings, with the main ones at the estate being Syrah and Grenache, chosen specifically for their soils and exposure.

Fortunately, the Ventoux has a cooler micro-climate than the vineyards near the Rhône, so the family can be guaranteed a longer and slower ripening of their fruit – especially important for these two varieties. The age of the vines ranges widely, anything from 20 to well over 80 years old. That helps add layers of depth and intrigue to this cuvee, which hails from just outside the boundaries of Chateauneuf-du-Pape to the west.
