Stylish, finesse, generous.
Chateau Pesquie is a family owned and run estate in the slightly cooler appellation of Ventoux, which is greatly influenced by Mont Ventoux. Syrah is more dominant here (while Grenache is the undisputed king of the southern Rhone) and there is more white planted here than most other appellations as well. Pesquie is organic and started biodynamic practices in 2015.
The Artemia is a blend of Grenache and Syrah and it presents attractive aromas of blackberry, juicy raspberry, mixed spices, mocha, leather and garrigue. It is stylish with a supple weight and generous fruit; blackberry, tobacco, leather and fine spice flavours mimic the nose. Excellent balance and finesse.
Good First Impressions, Cellar Keepers, French Food
