"A new cuvee introduced by importer Eric Solomon is the 2004 Pesquie Artemia, an equal-part blend of Grenache and Syrah fermented and aged in small oak casks. This wine exhibits dense ruby/purple color, peppery, earthy notes with plenty of kirsch as well as blacker fruits intermixed with some camphor, pain grille, and spice. The wine is more tannic than its two siblings, but impressively rich and long. It should age nicely for up to a decade. It is a serious wine, ambitiously styled, not more charming than the two less expensive cuvees, but more dramatic and bold. Chateau Pesquie certainly ranks among the top two or three estates of the Cotes du Ventoux. Working closely with Eric Solomon, who produces these custom cuvees, the quality appears spectacular, at least for American consumers who have access to a more personalized style of wine from this brilliant importer."
