*8R* 2011 Chateau Pesquie "Artemia" Ventoux Rouge (Rhone Valley, France
Varietal: Grenache Syrah
Region: Ventoux, Rhone Valley, France
93 Points Wine Advocate
Ventoux was established as an AOC in 1973, the same time that Odette and René Bastide were establishing themselves in the region. In this way, the couple and the new AOC grew up together, and the Bastides were quickly seen as pioneers in Ventoux. The Artemia Rouge is a staple of their lineup, with the 2011 vintage standing out as a classic rendition of the bottling. This full-bodied red features aromatic notes of cooked blackberries and a palate of rich spices and a slightly mineral finish.
