2017 Château Pesquié "Cuvée Artemia" Ventoux

SKU #1487228 94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A blend of 75% Syrah and 25% Grenache that saw roughly 20% stems and a year in 50% new, larger format oak, the 2017 Artemia has a Côte Brune-like perfume of dark fruits, smoked meats, black olives, and chocolate. Full-bodied, smoky, meaty, and powerful, it’s another rock star of a Syrah from the Chaudière family that has incredible character. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Beautiful smoky bacon, black pepper and menthol nose. Lovely texture on the juicy and rich palate with a long finish. This will age well. *Decanter World Wine Awards Silver Medal* Inner quote mark (6/2019)

91 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of 75% Syrah and 25% Grenache, the 2017 Ventoux Artemia features scents of violets and white pepper complemented by a base of blueberry and raspberry fruit. Medium to full-bodied, with a smooth, appealing texture and a silky finish, it should drink well for 7-8 years. (JC) Inner quote mark (9/2020)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Fresh boysenberry and blackberry coulis notes race along, tinged with mesquite and backed by a light mineral streak on the finish. (JM) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

Countless patrons over the years have enjoyed the Château Pesquié “Terrasses” red, so tasting this producer’s top tier of single vineyard, biodynamic wines proved a recent revelation. The Artemia is a silky blend of Syrah and Grenache grown on limestone gravels that lend notes of elegance and freshness reminiscent of wines from the northern Rhône—probably due to the cooling influence of Mont Ventoux. There’s a gentle nod toward Cornas in its velvety melange of black fruits, with hints of pepper, wildflowers, and a whiff of bacon on the long finish. Oh, it might be worth adding that “Artemia” translates as “good health.” Drink to that!

The wines of Pesquie are so dynamic and enthralling! It has been great to watch the development of this property into a very serious producer of wines that are some of the best and most complex for their region(Ventoux). The 2017 Chateau Pesquie Artemia is the ying to the yang of the 2017 Chateau Pesquie Silica, whereas the Silica is Grenache-dominated the Artemia is Syrah-dominated. The 2017 Pesquie Artemia has a nose loaded with fresh cracked pepper notes as well as dried herbs and subtle black fruit aromas. The palate is a sexy jumble of blackberries, molten rock and mocha-laced notes with the subtle refinement one might see in a Cote Rotie. This is a fabulous wine and easily competes with wines double the price.
Top Value! Drink from 2020 to 2030
