Winemaker Notes

Aromatic nose, with notes of violet flower, licorice, spices and fresh blackberry. The palate has a fresh and velvety texture, very balanced and very subtle, with aromas of strawberry, raspberry and violet flower, with a long and slightly peperry finish

Blend: 50% Syrah, 50% Grenache

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 96

Exotic, smoky nose of black olive and earthy redcurrant, then on to a plush palate graced with blackberry, clove, spice and a silky acidity.

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Impressive as a prospective blend taken from equal proportions of barriques, demi-muids and tanks, the 2018 Ventoux Artemia boasts exuberant notes of cherries and blueberries accented by assertive notes of cracked pepper. It's full-bodied, creamy and lush, then firms up just enough on the finish to think it will have a decade of longevity. Rating: (92-94)

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
This biodynamically farmed, single-vineyard blend of Syrah (75%) and Grenache (25%) offsets rich, spicy flavors of plum pudding and black figs against veins of crushed earth, granite and ore. It's a vibrant yet svelte red, supple in mouthfeel and tannins. Ready now, the wine should improve through 2028 and hold further.
JD 93
Jeb Dunnuck

A blend of 75% Syrah and 15% Grenache, the 2018 Ventoux Artemia was brought up in all in wood, 40% being new. This cuvée is mostly not destemmed and always seems to be the more Northern Rhône in the lineup. A Hermitage-like bouquet of smoked black fruits, smoked meat, violets, ground pepper, and bacon fat gives way to a medium to full-bodied, elegant, seamless red that has ample fruit, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It’s certainly an outstanding wine and I suspect will keep nicely for 10-12 years.

Rating: 91-93

Chateau Pesquie Winery Video

Chateau Pesquié is the story of three generations of passionate winemakers. Odette and René Bastide, took over the vineyard in the beginning of the 1970’s and restructured a large part of it. They used to bring their grapes to the local Cooperative.

Edith and Paul Chaudière, René & Odette’s daughter and son-in-law, decided to give up their medical careers to take over the family estate in 1985. They traveled in many wine regions (in France, Spain, Germany, the US, etc.), became sommeliers and worked on terroir selection... This led them to create their own winery in 1990, first vintage of Château Pesquié. By then, it was one of 10 independent wineries: there are now more than 120.

Fred and Alex Chaudière, the two sons of Edith & Paul, have taken over gradually since 2003 with the firm objective to take it to the next level and show the world how amazing the Ventoux terroir is!

In the 80’s, Paul Chaudière began sustainable farming. When Alexandre & Frederic took over, they started moving to organic (first plot converted in 2007). The estate is now fully converted to organic agriculture (Ecocert).

With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre form the base of the classic Rhône Red Blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. Though they originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley, with some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in other countries. Somm Secret—Putting their own local spin on the Rhône Red Blend, those from Priorat often include Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
