Wine of the Day

2011Pesquie2011 Ch√Ęteau Pesquie, Cotes du Ventoux “Terrasses” Rhone Valley Red, France.
This vibrant and deeply flavored red, made from Grenache and Syrah is a real winner, and gives amazing drinking pleasure for the price. Chateau Pesquie is totally reliable for solid wines and I’ve been a fan for ages, but this vintage is even more stunning for balance and interest with dark fruits, spice and length. The 2011 Terrasses shine from nose to finish with violets, warm earth, pepper and loads of black and red fruits that flow across the palate with refined tannins and lifting acidity. The plum, cassis and red berry fruit coat the mouth and the linger on the aftertaste. This wine delivers everything you’d want and will drink nicely for 2-3 years easy, I suggest you keep an eye open for this one.
