2012 Château Pesquié "Le Paradou" Grenache Vin de France

SKU #1156164 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2012 Côtes du Ventoux Le Paradou is an awesome value! Made from 100% Grenache (75-year-old vines) and aged 7 months in concrete tank, it offers up a naked expression of Grenache with meaty black cherry, pepper, dried Provencal herbs and earth all soaring from the glass. Medium to full-bodied, brilliantly pure and fresh, it has enough tannin to allow it to evolve gracefully for 3-4 years. It’s a knockout value and this crowd-pleaser should not be missed! Easily one of my favorite estates from the up-and-coming Ventoux region, Chateau Pesquie is run by the talented brothers, Alexandre & Frederic Chaudiere. The wines sell for a song, yet always deliver high-quality, loads of character and impeccably made profiles. (JD) Inner quote mark (12/2013)

Le Paradou rouge is a refreshingly bright and thoroughly gulpable Grenache from the winemaking team at Château Pesquié. It's the perfect pizza, pasta, Tuesday night red to enjoy with friends and family alike. And at a modest 13.5% abv you won't be feeling blotto the next morning if you pour yourself a little extra. A simple, yet super fun house wine. Glou Glou!
Drink from 2014 to 2016

The search for the perfect everyday drinking wine has ended! The 2012 Le Paradou is flat-out delicious! The very first sniff from the glass tells you this is going to be a highly enjoyable glass of wine with aromas of black pepper, plum, baking spices and hints of fresh flowers. The palate is a gorgeous array of black cherry cola, raspberry and herbs with great balance. This wine feels vibrantly alive, with its lively acidity framing the bright fruit flavors. The wine is incredibly versatile: it has enough fruit and body to easily be enjoyed on its own but has the structure and depth to seamlessly pair with most cuisines. This is one of the better values I have tasted this year and I will be sure to pick up at least a few bottles for myself!
Top Value! Drink from 2014 to 2016
