A blend of 75% Syrah and 25% Grenache that saw roughly 20% stems and a year in 50% new, larger format oak, the 2017 Artemia has a Côte Brune-like perfume of dark fruits, smoked meats, black olives, and chocolate. Full-bodied, smoky, meaty, and powerful, it’s another rock star of a Syrah from the Chaudière family that has incredible character.
A tank sample of the 2017 Ventoux Artemia looked promising, although a bit different in character from previous vintages. It's 75% Syrah and only 25% Grenache, with peppery, cool-climate Syrah notes, blueberryish fruit, ample weight and a clean, crisp, lively finish. One of the largest estates in the Ventoux, Château Pesquié is now completely organic, with the goal of being biodynamic in 2019. The Chaudière brothers, Alexandre and Frédéric, deserve great credit for building on their parents founding vision. (JC)
25% Grenache, 75% Syrah Tasting notes: Beautiful smoky bacon, black pepper and menthol nose. Lovely texture on the juicy and rich palate with a long finish. This will age well. Decanter World Wine Awards Silver Medal
Fresh boysenberry and blackberry coulis notes race along, tinged with mesquite and backed by a light mineral streak on the finish. (JM)
