Château-Pesquié Quintessence 2014
|Appellation||Cotes du Ventoux|
Wine AdvocateA vintage the estate is excited about as they loved the quality of the Syrah (don't forget that Ventoux is quite a ways from the Rhone Valley and have their own climate), the 2014 Ventoux la Quintessence is 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache aged in a combination of new, once and twice used barrels. Medium-bodied, pure and elegant, with lots of pepper, flowers, cassis and a touch of vanilla aromas and flavors, it needs a touch more polish to its tannin, but it's a beautiful Syrah that will keep for a decade.
Wine SpectatorRather ripe, with crushed plum and boysenberry fruit inlaid liberally with dark anise and fruitcake notes. Presents a fleshy and velvety feel through the finish, revealing a dose of toasted vanilla to boot. A crowd-pleasing style. Drink now through 2017. 600 cases imported.
All sizes are 750ml unless otherwise stated.
