Wine Advocate 91
A vintage the estate is excited about as they loved the quality of the Syrah (don't forget that Ventoux is quite a ways from the Rhone Valley and have their own climate), the 2014 Ventoux la Quintessence is 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache aged in a combination of new, once and twice used barrels. Medium-bodied, pure and elegant, with lots of pepper, flowers, cassis and a touch of vanilla aromas and flavors, it needs a touch more polish to its tannin, but it's a beautiful Syrah that will keep for a decade.

"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."
