92 Pts Jeb Dunnuck - The Rhone Report
"Following on the heels of the outstanding 2010 and 2011, the 2012 Chateau
Pesquie Cotes du Ventoux Terrasses is up there with the best vintage of the
cuvee to date. Comprised of 70% Grenache (60-year-old vines) and 30% Syrah
(30+ year-old vines), aged 6-8 months in 40% new oak barrels, it is
essentially declassified Quintessence and comes from hillside vineyards
lying between 840-930 feet in elevation. Bottled unfined and unfiltered and
transparent ruby in color, it offers up a gorgeously pure, supple, and
seamless profile with kirsch and berry styled fruit, licorice, and flower like qualities all emerging from the glass. Elegant, forward, delicious, it gains in stature in the glass, is ridiculously textured from
such an inexpensive wine, and has sweet tannin emerging on the finish. Buy
this thrill ride of a Cotes du Ventoux by the case and enjoy bottles over
the coming 3-5 years." (03/13)
92 Pts Jeb Dunnuck - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"In the same mold and an awesome value year in and year out, the 2012 Cotes du Ventoux Cuvee des Terrasses is a blend of 70% Grenache (60-year-old vines) and 30% Syrah (30+-year-old vines) that was aged two-thirds in concrete (and some in stainless steel) and one-third in older oak. Made from a blend of different terroirs on the estate (and basically declassified Quintessence) and coming from hillside vineyards lying between 840-930 feet in elevation, it offers up a gorgeously pure, supple and seamless profile with kirsch and berry-styled fruit, licorice and spring flower-like qualities all emerging from the glass. Elegant, forward and delicious, it gains in stature in the glass, is ridiculously textured from such an inexpensive wine, and has sweet tannin emerging on the finish. Buy this thrill ride of a Cotes du Ventoux by the case and enjoy bottles over the coming 3-5 years."
"Easily one of my favorite estates from the up-and-coming Ventoux region, Chateau Pesquie is run by the talented brothers, Alexandre & Frederic Chaudiere. The wines sell for a song, yet always deliver high-quality, loads of character and impeccably made profiles." (12/13)
"The vineyards are facing south at an altitude of 230 to 260 meters. Aged 6-8 months in oak barrels: 40 % of which are new and 60 % of which have been used one or two times previously." - Importer
"In 1985, Paul and Edith Chaudiere left their jobs in private industry (she was a voice therapist and he was a physical therapist) to study wine at one of Franceâs top wine universities at Suze la Rousse. 1989 marked the creation of the property in Mormoiron, one of the tiny villages dotting the beautiful countryside under the Mont Ventoux. Since then, they have been pushing the quality envelope in the zone, forcing other growers to raise quality as well. The name "Pesquie" comes from old provencal (which by the way is still spoken by a few people in the area) and means a "water basin" (the property is built on the site of an old pond.) The wines from Pesquie are some of the best values in the EC portfolio and would be double the price if grown just 20 minutes away in more "known" appellations." - Importer
