Three Wines From Chateau Pesquié

Today I had the opportunity to attend a Zoom tasting with Frédéric Chaudière, owner of Château Pesquié in Ventoux. Vinunic arranged and provided tasting samples. I cheated and opened the bottles yesterday, so the notes below are from two days.

2020 Terrasses Blanc, Château Pesquié
Young, fresh and floral on the nose with notes of yellow plums, grilled lemons, grass and gravel. A salivating nose. The same on day two.
The taste is cool and fine with notes of grilled lemons, dried flowers and grass. A fine saline touch in the finish. Very, very good. Better on day two. 40% Viognier and 20% each of white Grenache, Roussanne and Clairette. Available at the monopoly.
88p   (tasted 2021/09)

2019 Terrasses Rouge, Château Pesquié
This Grenache dominated wine displays a young, strappy nose with notes of herbs from Provence, blueberries, bakelite and warn gravel.  A tad better, more harmonious on day two.
The taste is seedy and structured with notes of black pepper sprinkled blueberries, fried herbs and earth. Some juicy tannins. Again, better on day two. 4+ years. Available at the monopoly.
88p   (tasted 2021/09)

2019 Quintessence Rouge, Château Pesquié
A deep, peppery, structured nose with notes of violets, blackberries, herbs and scorched earth. Very fine. Also here, better on day two. These wines needs time.
The taste is tight and finely focused with notes of blue- and blackberries, earth, black pepper and violets en masse. A very fine laid back warmth. 8+ years. Will be released on the monopoly on the 14th of September. For 20 Euro, a bargain with a fine aging potential.
