Always a terrific value, the 2014 Ventoux Terrasses is no exception and offers complex, classic southern Rhone notes of dried garrigue, pepper, spice-box, licorice and sweet cherry fruit. These carry to a medium to full-bodied, elegant and balanced red that gains depth and richness with time in the glass, has loads Provencal character and a great finish. Made from a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah that was aged in tank and old barrels, it can last for 7-8 years (I know as I just finished a case of the ’05, which was still going strong at age 10.) While 2013 and 2014 were difficult in the southern Rhone, readers should keep in mind that Ventoux is a huge region that has a varied climate that’s often quite different than what’s seen closer to the Rhone River. Chateau Pesquie is without a doubt one of the top estate in Ventoux and the wines are under-priced given their quality. (JD)
