Chateau Pesquie Terrasses Ventoux 2017 (France: Rhone, Southern) (ID# 1381)

Name Chateau Pesquie Terrasses Ventoux 2017 (ID# 1381)
Varietal Red Blend
Region France: Rhone, Southern
Notes "Showing more intensity and depth than the delicious 2016, the 2017 Ventoux Terrasses (tasted from tank) is a blend of 54% Grenache, 40% Syrah, 4% Cinsault and 2% Mourvèdre. Crushed stone notes accent dried spices and raspberries on the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate delivers rich, deep fruit flavors, plenty of concentration and an impressive velvety finish." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

" Longtime 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 is even better than the 2016 and 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 and sexy wine that has medium to full body, ripe tannins, notable minerality, and a great finish. A blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah that was all destemmed and brought up in concrete tanks, this is a raw, naked expression of this fabulous terroir located just south of Mount Ventoux." (Jeb Dunnuck)
