The 2016 Château Pesquié "Cuvée des Terrasses" is a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah. The grapes are sourced from the various terroirs of the estate, ranging from gravelly soil to limestone to iron-oxide rich clay. 30% of this vintage is aged in oak barrels (2 to 4 years old) or in oak tanks for about six months. All this diversity in grapes, terroir and vinification makes for a wine that is rich and complex.
91 points, Jeb Dunnuck:
"A year-in, year-out no-brainer is the "Terrasses" cuvée from this estate, and the 2016 is no exception. A blend of 70/30 Grenache and Syrah, it offers a terrific perfume of black cherries, wild herbs, dried flowers, and spice. This gives way to a plum, sexy, beautifully textured red that has surprising minerality, medium-bodied depth and richness and fine tannin. I finished a case of the 2005 just last year, and it was still going strong, so while there’s no need to cellar bottle, it will keep nicely for 7-8 years." (10/19/17)
90 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A bit more "serious" than the Edition 1912M, the 2016 Ventoux "Terrasses" delivers what longtime admirers have come to expect from the estate: ample fruit, complexity, weight and charm. Peppered raspberries and hints of garrigue drive the wine from start to finish, bolstered by fine, silky tannins and balanced acids. This solid value blend of Grenache and Syrah should drink well for 4-5 years from vintage." (10/31/17)
