Winemaker Notes

Golden white, bright color. Complex nose that mixes aromas of white flowers and exotic fruits (pineapple) and spices (safran, curry). On the palate, ample and round. Rich and balanced at the same time, with a good freshness, saltiness and a powerful aromatic intensity.

Ideal as an apertif, gorgeous pairing with truffles, white meats, fishes, warmed pate cheeses (comte) and refined goat cheeses.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
More serious and rich, the 2012 Cotes du Ventoux La Quintessence Blanc is 80% Roussanne, 15% Clairette and 5% Viognier that was fermented and aged in new and 1-year-old barrels. Loaded with notions of tropical fruits, honeysuckle, toast and white peach, it is medium-bodied, beautifully fresh and shows loads of class and length on the finish. It also stays remarkably fresh and focused and will be versatile on the dinner table.

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).

Full-bodied and flavorful, white Rhône blends originate from France’s Rhône Valley. Today these blends are also becoming popular in other regions. Typically some combination of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier form the basis of a white Rhône blend with varying degrees of flexibility depending on the exact appellation. Somm Secret—In the Northern Rhône, blends of Marsanne and Roussanne are common but the south retains more variety. Marsanne, Roussanne as well as Bourboulenc, Clairette, Picpoul and Ugni Blanc are typical.
