Winemaker Notes

Dark red color, with an intense nose blossoming into jammy berry aromas set off by a touch of spicy aromas. The well-structured, powerful mouthfeel with elegant tannins is enhanced by slightly woody licorice notes and a long finish.

Very easy to match with food. Pair with simples dishes such as pizzas, kebabs, charcuterie, vegetable pies or salads to more ambitiouscuisine like terrines, poultry, roasted or grilled meats.

Critical Acclaim

The Wine Advocate

The 2010 from Pesquie Terrasses, one of my all-time favorite producers in France, is a phenomenal bargain. This wine is absolutely stunning, and the best one they have made to date, and is a brilliant showcase for what looks to be another great vintage in the southern Rhone. A blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah, with 65% aged in tank and the rest in old barrels and foudres, it is bottled unfined and unfiltered for the American market. It’s just terrific, and the good news is that there are 7,000 cases, which is a rarity in this business – finding something spectacular in quality, low in price, with excellent availability. Its stunning dense bluish/purple color offers up notes of sweet blueberries, black cherry liqueur, licorice, incense, and a hint of hot rocks (almost gravelly, in the Bordeaux sense), but the wine hits the palate with amazing texture, succulence, fabulous fruit intensity, vivid purity and a vigorous, long, fresh finish that goes on past 30 seconds. Amazing for a $15 wine, it can probably be found discounted at $12-13. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.

Since then, they have been pushing the quality envelope in the zone, forcing other growers to... View More
