Château-Pesquié Terrasses 2015
Color: deep ruby color.
Palate: intense nose with spicy notes (especially black pepper) and red berries.
Mouth: This very balanced wine offers very round tannins and fresh berries aromas, with some floral and spicy flavors.
Food & Wine pairing: Very easy to match. With simple dishes such as pizzas, kebabs, charcuterie, vegetable pies or salads to more ambitious cuisine like terrines, poultry (guineafowl, turkey...), roasted or grilled meats.

Wine AdvocateA smoking good 2015 that readers should snatch up is the 2015 Cotes du Ventoux Cuvee des Terrasses, which is 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah that's aged in a combination of two- to four-year-old barrels and foudres. Medium to full-bodied, polished, silky and with no hard edges, it has classic Southern Rhone notes of Provencal spices, garrigue, licorice and ripe black raspberries. Buy a case and drink bottles over the coming 5-6 years.
Wine SpectatorFresh, with a silky feel to the mix of violet, crushed plum and lavender notes. Reveals a twinge of savory through the finish. Drink now. 10,000 cases imported.
