Wine Wednesday- Chateau Pesquie

IMG_6256

Last wine Wednesday we visited the vineyards of Mendoza Argentina for one of my favorite Malbec’s, Alamos. This week’s featured wine under $20 a bottle is from the Ventoux – Rhone Valley region, which is where my grandmother lives. This is one of my parents favorite table wines and at $15 a bottle you’ll see why. The Grenache/syrah blend makes for a big and bold, well balanced red that pairs easily with food. From simple dishes like pizza or pasta to fish and poultry- you won’t be disappointed. Enjoy!

Chateau Pesquie Cuvee des Terrasses Cotes du Ventoux Rouge 2011
  • Price: $15
  • Blend: 70% Grenache, 30% Syrah
  • Winemaker Notes: Dark red in color. Intense nose with notes of black berries and spicy aromas like pepper. The mouth is medium to full-bodied yet still very fresh and elegant tannins and flavors of red and black berries with a touch of spice.
  • About the Ventoux Region: The poor limestone soil of Côtes du Ventoux gives a fruity red wine, easy to drink and to appreciate. A good value wine.   
  • Grapes grown in Ventoux: Grenache, Carignan, Cinsault, Syrah, Mourvedre
