Notes

60% Grenache and 40% Syrah

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 "terraces" into the steep hillsides. Still today, they are very typical of their 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.

Viticulture:
Located at an average altitude of about 300 meters, it is a blend of the various terroirs of the estate from gravelly soil covered with pebbles and lime-stones to more or less rich in iron oxides sands and clays.

Vinification:
The grapes are crushed and destemmed. We obtain optimal color and aroma after a fifteen days maceration. Traditional wine-making is followed by a long rest. Then the wine is naturally clarified through a series of decanting at select times.

Tasting notes:
'A bit more "serious" than the Edition 1912M, the 2016 Ventoux Terrasses delivers what longtime admirers have come to expect from the estate: ample fruit, complexity, weight and charm. Peppered raspberries and hints of garrigue drive the wine from start to finish, bolstered by fine, silky tannins and balanced acids. This solid value blend of Grenache and Syrah should drink well for 4-5 years from vintage.' – Wine Advocate, 90/100

'Has a deep ruby color, with an intense nose filled with spicy notes of black pepper and red berries. This very balanced wine offers very round tannins and fresh berries aromas, with some floral and spicy flavours.' – Winemaker

This is a one of Wine Cellar’s favourite wines and has been listed by Neal Martin as one of the world’s greatest value wines!
