Chateau Pesquie Quintessence 2015 (France: Rhone, Southern)

Name Chateau Pesquie Quintessence 2015
Varietal Cotes Du Rhone Rouge
Region France: Rhone, Southern
Notes "Tasted as a final blend, the inky colored 2015 Ventoux la Quintessence is a step up over previous vintages, and I suspect it will be the greatest vintage for this cuvee to date. Not harvested until the 18th of October (which is average to early for this terroir... they finished on October 31st in 2013), it has sensational purity and polish, with full-bodied richness, a big mid-palate, ultra-fine tannin and killer notes of creme de cassis, blackberries, licorice and graphite. Count me as a fan and it's anther wine that will see its 20th birthday in fine form." (Wine Advocate)
