Winemaker Notes

Golden white with bright reflections. Complex nose mixing aromas of white flowers and exotic fruits (pineapple) and spices (safran, curry). The wine is ample and round on the palate. Rich and balanced at the same time, with a good freshness, saltiness, and a powerful aromatic intensity.

Blend: 80% Roussanne, 20% Clairette

Jeb Dunnuck
A smaller production cuvée made from 80% Roussanne and 20% Clairette that was fermented and aged in oak, the 2019 Ventoux Quintessence Blanc is a deeper, richer wine, with beautiful notes of buttered stone fruits, white flowers, toasted spice, and a touch of earthy garrigue. Beautiful on the palate as well, it’s medium to full-bodied and has plenty of mid-palate depth followed by a great finish. It’s drinking nicely today, yet as with a number of whites from this terrific estate, it’s going to age gracefully as well, and I wouldn’t put a solid decade or more of prime drinking past it.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A blend of 80% Roussanne (fermented and matured in demi-muids) and 20% Clairette (fermented and matured in tank), the 2019 Ventoux Quintessence Blanc comes across as a bit tight, taut and oaky—it appears to need some time to relax and allow the pineapple, pear and white peach notes to come through. It's medium-bodied and silky, with the potential to drink well for up to five years.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

Composed of 80% Roussanne and 20% Clairette, this fresh, green-apple sip balances the bright yellow pear and chamomile notes of Roussanne against the zest and mineral edge of Clairette. Dry and accented by tangs of salt, it's a refreshing white best enjoyed now–2026.

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.
