Robert Parker calls Château Pesquié one of his ‘all-time favourite producers in France‘ and ‘a phenomenal bargain’ and we agree. Since 2014, when we first imported the Pesquié wines, both the Paradou and Terrasses Rouge have been two of our top-selling wines. ‘The wines sell for a song, yet always deliver high-quality, loads of character and impeccably made profiles,’ says Jeb Dunnuck of The Wine Advocate

Tasting notes:
'An unoaked blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah, the 2017 Ventoux Terrasses is a bit less charming than it was when tasted from tank. Boasting pronounced notes of leather, cola and spice, it's medium to full-bodied and velvety in texture, but it lacks some of the vibrant fruit this cuvée often delivers.' – Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate, 89/100

Producer information 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.
