Wine Spectator 88 points - Engaging, with a briary note up front, followed by sappy plum, kirsch and blackberry fruit flavors lined with anise and tobacco details. An anise edge hangs on the finish. Drink now. 10,000 cases imported.-JM

Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2013 Ventoux Terrasses offer gorgeous garrigue, white pepper, underbrush and sweet berry fruit to go with a forward, seamless, elegant style on the palate. Year in and year out this cuvee isan incredible value and a no brainer that readers need to buy. (Jan 2015)
This word comes from the Latin terras, meaning R21;lump of earth”. The Ventoux region is characterized by alternating hills and valleys. To make the most of this exceptional terroir, vine growers and other farmers had to accomplish the colossal feat of building ”terraces” into the steep hillsides, choosing especially wellprotected, sunny locations. Still today, the Provence countryside boasts centuries old olive trees planted on terraces called restanques or rebanques in Provencal. The Chaudiere Family chose this name in homage to the Provence countryside terraces their ancestors carved into carefully chosen sites and to the site and garden of
Chateau Pesquie itself.
|At Chateau Pesquie, the Chaudiere Family has dedicated itself to express a unique terroir of the Ventoux. Pioneers in many ways, the three generations of winemakers from the family have always tried to share a long term vision: an agriculture of high quality has to be sustainable and responsible.
