WineScores' Review

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.

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.

WineScores is the more serious follow up to WineDiva.ca. WineScores was born from the demand to see wine writer Daenna Van Mulligen provide scores on her wine reviews. These are numerical scores based on a 100 point scale – an internationally recognized form of rating wines. These numbers provide a snapshot for
