"Longtime readers will know that I love this cuvée, which is year in, year out, one of the great value buys out there. The 2017 Terrasses is even better than the 2016 and ranks with the finest vintages I’ve tasted, matching the stunning 2010. The essence of kirsch liqueur, wild strawberries, and wildflowers flow to a full-bodied, plump, deep, beautifully layered and sexy wine that has medium to full body, ripe tannins, notable minerality, and a great finish. A blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah that was all destemmed and brought up in concrete tanks, this is a raw, naked expression of this fabulous terroir located just south of Mount Ventoux. There are over 6,000 cases brought into the U.S., so it should be relatively easy to find, and it has the capability to keep for 7-8 years."

Mouth: This very balanced wine offers very round tannins and fresh berries aromas, with some floral and spicy flavors.
This word comes from the Latin terras meaning "lump of earth" The Ventoux region is characterized by alternating hills and valleys To make the most of this exceptional terroir vine growers and other farmers had to accomplish the colossal feat of building " into the steep hillsides Still today, they are very typical of our landscapes and also called restanques or rébanqués in Provencal The Chaudière Family chose this name in homage to the terraces their ancestors carved into carefully chosen sites and to the garden of Chateau Pesquie itself." - Winery
