Robert Parker: Fullbodied palate delivers rich, deep fruit flavors
91-93/100 Crushed stone notes accent dried spices and raspberries on the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate delivers rich, deep fruit flavors, plenty of concentration and an impressive velvety finish.

Jeb Dunnuck: I love this cuvée
Readers will know that I love this cuvée, which is year in, year out, one of the great value buys out there. The 2017 Terrasses [...] ranks with the finest vintages I’ve tasted, matching the stunning 2010. The essence of kirsch liqueur, wild strawberries, and wildflowers flow to a full-bodied, plump, deep, beautifully layered [...] this is a raw, naked expression of this fabulous terroir located just south of Mount Ventoux

Description

This word comes from the Latin terras, meaning "lump of earth". The Ventoux region is characterized by alternating hills and valleys. To make the most of this exceptional terroir, vine growers and other farmers had to accomplish the colossal feat of building "terraces" into the steep hillsides. Still today, they are very typical of our landscapes and also called restanques or rébanqués in Provencal. The Chaudière Family chose this name in homage to the terraces their ancestors carved into carefully chosen sites and to the garden of Chateau Pesquie itself.

Soil

Located at an average altitude of about 300 meters, it is a blend of the various terroirs of the estate from gravelly soil covered with pebbles and lime-stones to more or less rich in iron oxides sands and clays.

Grapes

60 % Grenache and 40 % Syrah (with some traces of Carignan, Cinsault and mourvedre)

Vinification

The grapes are crushed and destemmed. We obtain optimal color and aroma after a fifteen days maceration. Traditional wine-making is followed by a long rest. Then the wine is naturally clarified through a series of decanting at select times. 30 % of this vintage is aged in oak barrels (2 to 4 years old) or in oak tanks for about six months. Bottled at the Château.

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!
