2022 Chateau Pesquie Cotes du Ventoux Cuvee des Terrasses Blanc
Frédéric Chaudière and his brother Alexandre jointly run Château Pesquié, located at the foot of Mont Ventoux. Their 72 hectares of vineyards are located within a maximum radius of 5 km around the Château in the municipality of Mormoiron and are planted on a very siliceous soil, mixed with clay and sandstone. The ecological way of working, in combination with a high-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 great 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.
Château Pesquié 'Terrasses' Blanc is a cuvée of 40% Viognier, 20% Roussanne, 20% Grenache and 20% Clairette, which thrive on the terraces of Mont Ventoux, which are on average 350 meters above sea level and contain a lot of limestone. The Viognier was harvested at the beginning of September, Grenache, Roussanne and Clairette were harvested at the end of September. All grape varieties were fermented in stainless steel tanks for approx. 15 days. The use of wood has been deliberately avoided. Because viognier is only allowed with a maximum of 50% in the Ventoux A. P, the wine was qualified as 'Vin de France', which does not change the fact that it is a real Pesquié Terrasses! Delicious viognier, fresh, floral and fruity, with a light acidity, notes of honeysuckle, peach and pear. The touch of exotic fruit in the aftertaste is very pleasant.
