2020 Chateau Pesquie Cuvée Juliette Blanc
Frédéric Chaudière and his brother Alexandre together run Château Pesquié, located at the foot of Mont Ventoux. Their 72 hectares of vineyards are located within a radius of up to 5 km around the Château in the commune of Mormoiron and are planted on a very siliceous soil, mixed with clay and sandstone. The ecological way of working, in combination with a good quality and varied soil, the right grape varieties with a considerable age and the favorable microclimate with the cooling effect of the Mont Ventoux, guarantee top quality wines. Both brothers, with a lot of love for their wines and passion for quality, are currently seen as pioneers of their region and are a shining example for the Ventoux appellation. Robert Parker underlines the quality of this Château by regularly giving high scores.
