Chateau Pesquie Silica Rouge 2017 75cl
The terroir of Château Pesquié has one of the coolest microclimates in the south of the Rhône Valley. The terroir has a great mineral diversity, predominantly consisting of limestone. The Ventoux Mountain provides exceptional conditions to create outstanding wines.
Silica is one of the three single vineyards of Château Pesquié with Artemia and Ascensio. Its name recalls the terroir of sand in which it draws its exceptional finesse and elegance. It also is an homage to one of the most important elements used in biodynamic farming and that reinforces the brightness and glittering sides of wine.
"Destemmed and aged in 30% concrete and 70% larger barrels, it has a thrilling perfume of caramelized cherries, strawberries, spiced meats, and licorice, with a touch of Côte Rôtie-like floral notes developing with time in the glass.
Seamless, medium to full-bodied, deep, and layered, it's all about finesse and elegance, yet still offers remarkable depth of fruit. Drink this beautiful Ventoux any time over the coming decade.

"Beautiful smoky bacon, black pepper and menthol nose. Lovely texture on the juicy and rich palate with a long finish. This will age well."
