2009 Château Pesquié Quintessence Côtes du Ventoux 750ml

Paul and Edith Chaudière chose the name "Quintessence" to highlight the superiority, concentration, and careful selection of both the oldest vines (Grenache over 50) and the best vintages of production. Indeed, such a name implies extreme rigor, and not every vintage can achieve a Quintessence ! But isn't rareness the very essence of Quintessence?

ROBERT PARKER RATING: 93

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 2010 Terrasses actually eclipses their top cuvee, the 2009 Quintessence, which has just been released. This is a serious wine on its own, and certainly capable of lasting a decade or more, but the vintage quality of 2010 has produced remarkable fruit, with the best concentration and purity of fruit that I have seen in the southern Rhone since 2007, which remains the single greatest vintage I have ever tasted from that region. This blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache, aged in barrels for 12 months (40% new and 60% two years old) and bottled unfined and unfiltered, has a dense purple color and deep licorice, graphite, black currant and black cherry notes with hints of earth and spice as well as some pepper and meat juice in a dense, medium to full-bodied, slightly more tannic style than the 2010 Terrasses. To reiterate, it should last for at least a decade.

Great for its Price Review by Amy L

I was a big fan of the "Terrases" but this one was better even though I had to spend a bit more (Posted on 1/26/12)
Another Super Rhone From Pesquie Review by Harry (Staff)
Rating
Ch. Pesquie has been making great bang for the buck wines. The wine is full body and complex with great depth. The syrah really comes through with cherry, spice and a long finish. Overall a good value for a wine that can easily sell for $35. (Posted on 1/26/12)
