Chateau Pesquie Cotes du Ventoux Quintessence 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Also superb, the 2011 Cotes du Ventoux La Quintessence comes from terraced hillside vineyards located in the northern part of the appellation. Made from 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache, and aged for 12 months in 50% new French oak, it sports a perfumed, spice-driven profile with raspberry ganache, red licorice, wild herbs and pepper-like qualities all emerging from the glass. Balanced, fresh and elegant, with medium to full-bodied richness, knockout texture and chewy tannin, it should shine for 5-7 years...92" WA "Easily one of my favorite estates from the up-and-coming Ventoux region, Chateau Pesquie is run by the talented brothers, Alexandre & Frederic Chaudiere. The wines sell for a song, yet always deliver high-quality, loads of character and impeccably made profiles.

I bought two bottles of this wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/107571.Cotes de Ventoux,or simply Ventoux as it is now called,is an appellation created in 1973 for red,white and rose wines [athough most are red] from 51 communes around the 6000 foot high Mount Ventoux in the South of France some 25 miles east of the town of Orange.My bottle was made at the family owned concern of Chateau Pesquie and consists of 80% syrah and 20% grenache and was aged in oak barrels.I started my bottle last night with my supper of beef stew.It is certainly a full-bodied wine.There is plenty of a concentrated blackcurrant and blackberry style fruit with a suggestion of menthol and a hint of spice. The tannins are not intrusive but it is a well structured wine. In short this is a first class wine and I can see why the American wine critic Robert Parker likes this estate.
