Tasting notes

Golden color with silvery glints, clear and bright.

Nose of white flowers, white fruits (peach).

In mouth, very fresh and balanced, with citrus aromas (lemon), white fruits and a great minerality.

Food & Wine pairing A favorite as an aperitif, Le Paradou Viognier is one of those rare wines that can be paired with asparagus. Very elegant with grilled fishes, fried squid, scallops, it emphasizes dishes with cheese such as Parmiggiano Risotto and goes well with goat cheeses. For desserts, with apricot pie or even strawberry soups.

The exact origin of the Viognier is unknown, but it is the vine of the mythical Condrieu of the Northern Rhone Valley. Even though it almost disappeared in the middle of the twentieth century, it is now famous around the world. It grows best on lime-stones and chalky soils and needs some cool temperatures to preserve its elegance. In a climate which is too hot, its aroma becomes heavy and denatured. The Viognier is very fragile during growth and during the wine-making process, it is characterised by low yields and very elegant aromas: apricot, pear, violet and white flowers.

Description

“Paradou” in the old Provençal language, the “langue d’oc,” does not mean “paradise” but refers to the old watermills that once dotted the landscape. Le Paradou is indeed a former watermill owned by the Chaudière Family and the guest house of Château Pesquié. Frédéric & Alexandre Chaudière, the new generation of the family have selected great Viognier plots at the foot of the Mount Ventoux and at the foot of the Cévennes (South East of the Central Mountain, the « Massif Central ») between Montpellier and Nîmes to make a very fresh and elegant Le Paradou white.

Château Pesquié - A family adventure lasting three generations

Château Pesquié is the story of a family passionate about the Ventoux region, a region where vines had been cultivated for more than thousand years.

In the early 1970’s, René and Odette Bastide bought Château Pesquié. The area, AOC Côtes du Ventoux, was not created until 1973. Thus, making René and Odette pioneers of this new AOC, with  the beginning of a local production toward - quality rather than quantity. As a result of  René and Odettes work with reconstructing the vineyards, the vines are now in average 35 to 40 years of age, and the oldest close to a hundred years.

In the mid-1980’s their daughter Edith and son-in-law Paul Chaudière decided to take over the family estate. They passed the Consultant Sommelier exams at the “Université du Vin”, and went on several research trips to other great wine regions. Having completed this intensive preparation, Paul, Edith, René & Odette finally set up the Château Pesquié cellars in 1989, leaving the local Cooperative. 

They carried out their first vinifications in 1990, which was a fabulous vintage. The Quintessence 1990 is still beautiful at the moment! At the time, the Appellation had fewer than 10 independent cellars and, once again, the Chaudière family stood out as pioneers in the Ventoux AOC.

In 2003, Paul and Edith’s two sons, Alexandre and Frédéric, took over the Domaine. They are continuing the family tradition: to harness the potential of the outstanding Ventoux terroir and to make extraordinary wines.

Château Pesquié is now a leading estate in the Ventoux AOC and the southern Rhone Valley. The new generation hopes to take it to the next level!
