Chateau Pesquie Terrasses 2009
|Region||France, Rhone, Cotes du Ventoux|
Ripe and suave, with supple tannins that meld into the plum and boysenberry fruit, all laced with incense, black tea and pastis notes. Dark but pure on the finish. Grenache and Syrah.
Pesquié's entry-level red is a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah, aged in a combination of tank and used oak. The result boasts dark fruit notes of blackberry and plum, but also hints of savory leather and spice. It's medium bodied, with a firmness to the finish that suggests it should hold nicely for 3-4 years.
