2017 Château Pesquié "Silica" Ventoux

SKU #1487229 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A new cuvée for this estate that comes from a single, higher elevation vineyard of sandy soils, the 2017 Silica is primarily Grenache yet includes 10% Cinsault. 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.

This is such a beguiling and under-the-radar bottle of wine! As its name suggests, the Silica is a pure, terroir-driven wine cultivated from a single elevated site on sandy soils. One rarely encounters a Grenache-based wine with this suave interplay of lithe, delicate red fruits, harmonious restraint, and underlying structure—an ode to both the careful hand in the vineyard, and the skilled winemaker’s art.

While the Chateau Pesquie Artemia is Syrah-dominated the 2017 Chateau Pesquie Silica is a 90% Grenache and 10% Cinsault blend that absolutely dazzles the palate. Here the Grenache is totally on display with brilliant aromas and flavors of fresh raspberries reverberating throughout this wine. Everything here comes together to showcase not only the beautiful Grenache notes, but subtle spice aromas and flavors of both cinnamon and red licorice present themselves as the perfect frames for the complex fruit core. This wine feels like a fine Chateauneuf-du-Pape but costs roughly 1/2 as much. This is a true winner of a wine and a great expression for the underrated region of Ventoux.
