"A Cotes du Rhone may be a simple entry-level wine for most producers in the Rhone but for Pesquier this is a much more serious effort. The grapes come from a 5 acre plot in Sablet where they could make a cotes du rhone villages level wine but instead make an over-achieving straight cotes du rhone. The Pesquier Cotes du Rhone is both lively and profound with extraordinary textural details, an explosive nose and great length in the mouth; flavors of dark red fruits, licorice root and cocoa abound within a structure of fine tannins. Only 700 cases are made of this superb Grenache 70%, Mourvedre 20% blend (plus 10% Carignan and Cinsault)." -Importer
