Château-Pesquié Quintessence 2015

SKU 89324


Château Pesquié Quintessence Rouge was first made in 1990 by Paul Chaudière as an attempt to show that the Ventoux was capable of producing a wine as rich and compelling as anything else in the Rhône valley. At that time this region was considered a backwater of the Rhône, only capable of producing cheap, bulk wine. Largely due to the efforts of Paul, and now his sons Alex and Fred, the Ventoux's reputation has never been better and Quintessence remains one of the benchmark wines of the region and a tremendous value. Quintessence is a blend of primarily Syrah with a small proportion of Grenache - all from 50 year old vines planted at an elevation of 250-350m.

Wine AdvocateMore Syrah-dominated, the 2015 Ventoux la Quintessence (80% Syrah and 20% Grenache) sports a saturated purple color as well as abundant notes of blackberries, blueberries, cracked pepper, violets and smoked herbs. Young, backwards and unevolved, it has plenty of fruit, ripe tannin and outstanding length.

Wine SpectatorThis has a core of dark plum and fig fruit coated with a glossy sheen of toasted vanilla and anise notes. Rather obvious, but delivers the fruit. Drink now through 2018. 600 cases imported.
