Blend: 75% Syrah and 25% Grenache

Artemia is the top cuvée of Chateau Pesquié. It is an attempt to show the amazing potential of the Ventoux terroir through two single vineyards, one of Grenache and one of Syrah. This wine offers great density, concentration, elegance and freshness. It will start showing its best after at least 4 – 5 years of cellaring. The Chaudière family chose the name 'Artemia' as it means both 'good health' and 'integrity' in ancient Greek.

Tasting notes:
'Beautiful smoky bacon, black pepper and menthol nose. Lovely texture on the juicy and rich palate with a long finish. This will age well.' – Decanter World Wine Awards, 93/100 (Silver)

'A blend of 75% Syrah and 25% Grenache, the 2017 Ventoux Artemia features scents of violets and white pepper complemented by a base of blueberry and raspberry fruit. Medium to full-bodied, with a smooth, appealing texture and a silky finish, it should drink well for 7-8 years. Drink 2019 - 2028.' – Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate, 91/100 (Sep 2020)

'Superb blueberry fruit, black cherry and soft tannin. Excellent purity and persists – punches way above its weight. Beautifully layered and lengthy. Proves that there is great terroir in Ventoux. Very impressive.' – Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17+/20

About Château Pesquié:
Château Pesquié, situated northeast of Avignon within the Rhône Valley, is a place that, according to Wine Spectator, looks like it has produced fine wines for decades. The estate consists of 250 acres of organic vineyards spread over the foothills of Mont Ventoux. Its landmark is the wind-whipped, white limestone peak that watches over the estate. Robert Parker calls Château Pesquié one of his 'all-time favorite producers in France', and their reputation confirms this after receiving more than a dozen 90-plus-point scores for their wines. Their wines are described as fresh, fruit-driven and exuberant, and are the best examples of today's Ventoux AOC bottlings.
