Jeb Dunnuck: Drink this beautiful Ventoux any time over the coming decade
Destemmed and aged in 30% concrete and 70% larger barrels, it has a thrilling perfume of caramelized cherries, strawberries, spiced meats, and licorice, with a touch of Côte Rôtie-like floral notes developing with time in the glass. Seamless, medium to full-bodied, deep, and layered, it’s all about finesse and elegance, yet still offers remarkable depth of fruit. Drink this beautiful Ventoux any time over the coming decade

Description Silica is one of the three single vineyards of Château Pesquié with Artemia and Ascensio. Its name recalls the terroir of sand in which it draws its exceptional finesse and elegance. It also is an hommage to one of the most important elements used in biodynamic farming and that reinforces the brightness and glittering sides of wine.

Soil Sand with a slight presence of limestone gravels.

Varieties 90% Grenache and 10% Cinsault.

Winemaking Fermented in a concrete tank, maceration of a little less than 4 weeks with particularly soft infusion (the cap is very lightly wetted everyday to limit extraction).

Aging for 12 to 15 months in a selection of 600 L barriques (75%) and a ciment egg (25%). Bottled at the Château.

Tasting Color : ruby Nose : delicate and intense at the same time, with aromas of flowers and fresh red berries. Mouth : very bight and juicy, with a lot of finesse and silky tannins, with crisp berry notes, kirch and white peper.

Food & wine pairing Serve at 18°C (64°F) with charcuteries or grilled meat. This very delicate wine will find great harmony with light and refined dishes rather than more powerful ones.

The History of Château Pesquié is the story of a family passionate about the Ventoux region. They recognized the outstanding potential of a region where vines had been cultivated for more than thousand years.
A family adventure lasting three generations

Edith & Paul ChaudiereIn the early 1970’s, Odette & René Bastide bought Château Pesquié from an heir of a famous Provençal writer, Alphonse Daudet. Despite a long vine growing tradition in the area, the AOC Côtes du Ventoux was not created until 1973. Thus making them pioneers of this new AOC. It was the beginning of a new dynamic driving the local production toward quality rather than quantity. René & Odette largely restructured the vineyards. The results of that work are now vines that average 35 to 40 years of age (the oldest are close to a hundred years old).

In the mid-1980’s, Edith & Paul Chaudière, René & Odette’s daughter and son-in-law, decided to give up their medical careers (as a physiotherapist and a speech therapist) to take over the family estate. They prepared for the adventure by resuming their studies. They passed the Consultant Sommelier exams at the “Université du Vin” in Suze-La-Rousse and prepared a thesis on Terroir Selection. They went on several research trips to other great wine regions (Napa Valley, Bordeaux, Oregon, Burgundy, Piedmont, Rioja…). They completed this academic preparation with vocational training at the wine Institute in Orange, where Paul’s father, Charles Chaudière, was an oenology professor. On the Chaudière side of the family, vine cultivation has been an important tradition for the past 150 years. The Chaudière family emigrated from Alsace to Algeria, when Alsace became temporarily German territory in 1871. There in Algeria, the family acquired land where they began growing vines.

Domain springHaving 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!
