Château Pesquie new top scores in The Wine Advocate

November 3, 2016

 

2007 Chateau Pesquie Cotes du Ventoux Cuvee Artemia 97/100

While I questioned if the 2009 Artemia was the greatest wine I'd tasted from Ventoux in my notes, I know for a fact the 2007 Cotes du Ventoux Cuvee Artemia is the greatest wine I've tasted from the estate, and the appellation! A wine that would stand toe to toe with some of the greatest Chateauneuf du Papes out there, this utterly profound Ventoux o ers awesome aromatics of incense, blackberries, crushed owers, licorice and cured meats. Pure, full-bodied, silky and weightless, yet packed with character and avor, it's a truly sensational wine that readers shouldn't miss!

2015 Chateau Pesquie Ventoux la Quintessence (93 - 95)

Tasted as a nal blend, the inky colored 2015 Ventoux la Quintessence is a step up over previous vintages, and I suspect it will be the greatest vintage for this cuvee to date. Not harvested until the 18th of October (which is average to early for this terroir... they nished on October 31st in 2013), it has sensational purity and polish, with full-bodied richness, a big mid-palate, ultra- ne tannin and killer notes of creme de cassis, blackberries, licorice and graphite. Count me as a fan and it's anther wine that will see its 20th birthday in ne form.

2015 Chateau Pesquie Ventoux la Quintessence Blanc (90 - 92)

Tasted out of barrel, the 2015 Ventoux la Quintessence Blanc is always a blend of Roussanne mixed with 20% Clairette. Fermented in barrel (the Clairette is all in cement tanks), it has a fresh, elegant, citrus pro le to go with ample minerality, pepper and stone fruit-like aromas and avors. Very crisp, medium-bodied and fresh, it has terri c purity and delineation.
