Chateau Pesquié Quintessence Rouge 2017

Rött vin från Rhone Frankrike

Robert Parker: Savory complexity comes in the form of dried herbs and baking spices, plus a dusting of cocoa powder on the long, warming finish. This is a full-bodied and fully ripe wine, but it stays balanced and never comes across as heavy or rustic in the least.

Gassås Wine: Ännu en stor årgång, spara minst i 5 år
Wine Advocate: Licking my lips in anticipation
92-94/100 – Wine Advocate (#239 – Oct 2018): Looking just as good as the 2016, a prospective blend of the 2017 Ventoux Quintessence had me licking my lips in anticipation. It's full-bodied and rich yet crisp on the finish, just loaded with blueberry fruit and hints of dried spices
Jeb Dunnuck: Fullbodied richness
92-94/100 – Jeb Dunnuck (August 2018): “It has a little bit of a CôteRôtie vibe in its ripe raspberry and blackberry fruits, floral, and peppery herb-driven aromas and flavors, and hits the palate with medium to fullbodied richness, ample tannins, and a building sense of minerality on the finish.


The Chaudière Family started this cuvée in 1990 and chose the name "Quintessence" to highlight the exception and the concentration of this wine. Complex and powerful yet with a great balance and a beautiful freshness, it is the result of a drastic parcel selection.


Clay and limestone soil at an altitude between 250 and 350 meters (800 and 1 150 feet)


80 % Syrah - 20 % Grenache (50 years old vines and more). Yields between 30 and 35 hl/ha.


The grapes are selected, crushed, and destemmed. Three to four weeks maceration with traditional air pumping over. Aged twelve to fifteen months in barrels: 40% of which are new and 60% of which are two to three years old. Bottled at the Château.

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!
