    Ventoux is one of those appellations that often confuses many a wine-enthusiast. Most don't know where it is or what it's about. The region sits on the southeastern end of the Rhone appellation just below Mont Ventoux. It is to the east of Gigondas and south of all the other Cotes du Rhone appellations. This oversized region has a diversity of microclimates and soil types that heavily influence the individual estates of the region and are less affected by vintage variation. Pesquie sits above 300 meters between the Mediterranean to the south and the Alps just to the north. Mont Ventoux is part of the pre-alps and is the largest mountain in the region. This confluence of mountain and Mediterranean is what makes the terroir and wines of Pesquie so special. The wine itself is a beauty of brambly black fruit, Indian spices, toasty tobacco and grilled meat. This little savory wonder captures the essence of Ventoux with its cooler climate flavors emboldened by the warm Mediterranean afternoons. A spectacular rendition from the Rhone.

    While the last vintage was delicious, it was a bit heavy-handed on the baked fruit. This 2013 feels much more balanced and a touch greener, with surprisingly bright acid and a hit of Provencal herbs. The fruit shows as more vivid blackberry, but retains the classic dark plum flavors and structure of previous releases. A perfect BBQ wine that still has enough brooding sophistication to impress dinner guests, Château Pesquié "Terrasses" is a value-priced summer staple to pair with meals well into cooler seasons as well.

    The nose points towards savory characteristics: bloody, charcoal, charcuterie. A perfect pairing for a murder mystery. Dark and brooding, on the palate there are plenty of black fruits with a slightly sweet undertone. This is exactly the kind of wine I really like and will totally end up taking home on a Tuesday.
