Chateau Pesquie Terrasses Rose 2017
A very pale rose with aromas of small fresh red berries and citrus fruits. On the palate, it is well-balanced and fresh, with notes of gooseberries, raspberries, citrus and flowers.
Delightful as an aperitif, or with grilled meats and fish, raw or grilled vegetables, charcuterie, soft white cheese and spicy dishes. Also great with fresh fruit-based desserts and sorbet.

Stretching across the slopes of the Ventoux mountain in the southeastern region of the Rhône River Valley, Cotes du Ventoux excels in the production of spicy and characterful red blends based on Grenache, Syrah, and other indigenous varieties. The region also produces rich and aromatic whites and rosés.
Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color depends on grape variety and winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta.
