"Another great vintage for this cuvee, the 2011 Château Pesquié Côtes du Ventoux Terrasses, a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah aged all in tank and old foudre, offers up a perfumed bouquet of sweet red fruits, violets, licorice, sappy garrigue, and hints of minerality that flows to a medium-bodied, gorgeously textured and seamless palate. Needing a short decant to flesh out, this brilliant value has no hard edges, silky tannin, and an elegant, „oh so drinkable‟ profile. Enough cannot be said about the quality coming out of this estate, and this wine should be purchase by the case and drunk over the coming 2-4 years. Silky, elegant, and delicious are the buzzwords here and this will drink way past its price point!"
"Dark red in color. Intense nose with notes of black berries and spicy aromas like pepper. The mouth is medium to full-bodied yet still very fresh and elegant tannins and flavors of red and black berries with a touch of spice. Pairs easily with food, from simple dishes like pizza, kebabs, charcuterie and salads to more ambitious cuisine like terrines, poultry and roasted or grilled meats." -Importer
