Chateau Pesquie Terrasses 2009 wine review by (PB)
This Rhone blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah an immature purple in color with an "all" Grenache nose of fruity pie berries galore.
Robust fruit filled palate, bread undertones with loads of berries on the tartish pie side with a decent, ripe tannin bed.
This is a young wine and needs plenty of air to open up so decant it several hours and serve at a decent room temperature; that doesn't mean summer time, un-air conditioned room temperature! Something closer to 65-70 degrees.
Don't be shy about bathing it in an ice bath if it has been sitting on your hot kitchen counter either, just don't leave it in the water. A half hour should be enough and at the $11 price point, this is a value wine so raise a glass.
