2009 Chateau Pesquie Terrasses Cotes du Ventoux
|A nice meaty Rhone Valley red that comes from the Cotes du Ventoux area which I am only beginning to discover. But this is big thick red, packaged up really nice, that is a clear standout for the $12.99 price tag at Costco (and I’ve even seen it lower elsewhere which was surprising).|
Mostly Grenache driven (70% with 30% Syrah), the wine retains an old world feel in the mouth, excellent concentration of fruit with cherry and raspberry flavors, and a superb finish that is both fresh and dry. Well done with a great price tag. Give this one a shot, and add Ventoux as a wine area that demands proper exploration. I’m going to put this wine on both our Value Picks and Bronze Rated wine list.
