The Château Pesquié Wines

The Pesquié style is elegant and fresh, taking its force from the unique, elevated terroir of Mont Ventoux and the sincere passion of its winegrowers. Its cuvees in red, white and rosé are adapted to any occasion: fresh and light "pleasure wines", more complex and concentrated wines and, for special moments, the parcellary cuvees made with grapes from the best terroirs.

PARCELLARY CUVEES

These wines are all about expressing the terroir, revealing the great geological diversity of our vineyard: the grenache vines grow in sandy soil for Silica, stony limestone at altitude for Artemia, and clayey-limestone for Ascensio. The Cuvée Juliette reveals the minerality and salinity of the terroir of Ventoux with finesse and elegance.

Ascencio

This parcellary cuvee has great cellaring potential and offers a very rare intensity and concentration for a wine made mostly with Grenache grapes, grown in a clayey-limestone terroir scattered with boulders.

ASCENCIO

Quintessence

Over the years the Quintessence cuvee, in red and white, has become a trademark of the Château Pesquié style. It is a rich and complex wine, where the precision of the aging process underlines the freshness of the blends and brings out the best of the Syrah for the red and the Roussanne for the white.

Ascencio

This blend, with a majority of Syrah completed by Grenache, gives a dense and powerful wine with velvety tannins.

ROUGE

THE VARIETALS

Here, the Chaudière family continues to put the emphasis on freshness with two varietals that are not typical of the region: the easily-digestible Muscat Petit Grain grape, grown in the safre and limestone terroirs of the AOC Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise, and a sharp Chardonnay in its purest form and without oakwood aging.

Ascencio

Selected by the Chaudière family, this fresh, light and mineral Chardonnay is characteristic of terroirs and micro-climates at altitude.

CHARDONNAY

The wines
Ascencio

This Muscat is a Vin Doux Naturel (VDN or natural sweet wine) which subtly proposes a complex bouquet combining notes of citrus, and aromas of white flowers and pale-fleshed fruits.
