Chateau Pesquie Cuvee Quintessence 2013
90  Wine Spectator 
Wine Spectator 90  "An amped-up style, with a strong dose of dark vanilla and licorice notes coating the core of crushed plum and raspberry pâte de fruit. A toasty edge holds the finish. Has the fruit to offset the toast, but this is for fans of the style only. Syrah and Grenache."  " Dense

Chateau Pesquie 'Le Paradou' Cinsault Rose 2014
"Cinsault seems to originally be from Provence and largely spread through the Rhône Valley and the Languedoc-Roussillon.

93  Robert Parker 
 Robert Parker 93 "The 2010 Terrasses actually eclipses their top cuvee, the 2009 Quintessence, which has just been released. This is a serious wine on its own, and certainly capable of lasting a decade or more, but the vintage quality of 2010 has produced remarkable fruit, with the best
