Located at the foot of the Ventoux mountain in the Rhône Valley, Château Pesquié has been cultivating vines for 2000 years. In the Provençal language, the term “pesquié” (from the Latin “pescarium”) originally describes a fishpond and applies to the lexical field surrounding springs and water which are vital commodities in the dry Provençal climate. The terroir of Château Pesquié has one of the coolest microclimates in the south of the Rhône Valley. The terroir has a great mineral diversity, predominantly consisting of limestone. The Ventoux Mountain provides exceptional conditions to create outstanding wines. In modern times, the estate has been family-owned and run by the same family for three generations, making some of the best wines of the appellation. Made of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah in the 2014 vintage, the name 'Terrasses' refers to the terraces painstakingly built by their ancestors into the steep vineyards.

Wine AdvocateA 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.
