Grapes: Viognier/Grenache Blanc/Roussanne/Clairette
Region/History Notes: Ventoux is certainly not the most famous sub-region in Rhône but it provides a unique terroir and climate to make elegant wines without the price tag of some more well-known regions. The vineyards at Ch. Pesquié are situated at the foot of Mt. Ventoux and are higher elevation than most of the rest of Southern Rhône with high concentrations of limestone in the soils. The family has 50 years and 3 generations of history tending these vineyards and now farm biodynamically. The Terrasses label is unoaked and made to be drunk young and often!
Tasting Notes: This wine is fresh, fruit-forward, engaging and vibrant! Green melon, pineapple, and kiwi notes are joined with just the tiniest hint of floral characteristics. The finish is the perfect balance of brightness and texture with a creamy mouthfeel and citrus fruits. Pair with crab cakes, creole spiced creamy pasta dishes, or grilled fish.
