2011 Chateau Pesquie Quintessence


The wines from the Rhone represent tremendous value and all the wines from this vineyard in Ventoux region are exceptional. Chateau Pesquie exemplifies the Rhone varietals of Syrah and Grenache especially and the Quintessence is elegant, silky, and creamy. It reminds me of the wines from Cali and do not let the high alcohol content(15.5) scare you. This is a luscious 80 percent syrah, 20 percent grenache wine which goes well with many dishes and works particularly well with spicy food. Retails for about 15 pounds a bottle in the UK and 20-25$ in the US. my rating 92 pts.  They make two other red wines which are also worth checking out, Artemia and Terrasses: http://www.chateaupesquie.com
