    Winemaker's Notes:

    Paul and Edith Chaudière chose the name "Quintessence" to highlight the superiority, concentration, and careful selection of both the oldest vines (Grenache over 50) and the best vintages of production. Indeed, such a name implies extreme rigor, and not every vintage can achieve a Quintessence! But isn't rareness the very essence of Quintessence?

    Critical Acclaim:

    Pesquie's top cuvee, the 2006 Quintessence Rouge, is made from the estate's oldest Syrah (80%) and Grenache (20%) vines, spends 12 months in French oak, and is bottled unfined and unfiltered. This beauty boasts a dense ruby/purple hue along with abundant aromas of blackberries, charcoal, cassis, and forest floor. The sweetness of the tannins, purity, full-bodied mouthfeel, and richness are impressive. It should drink nicely for 4-5 years.
