In the cellar – Les Terrasses Blanc
Les Terrasses Blanc, Chateau Pesquie, Ventoux, Southern Rhone 2015
In 2003, and Edith Chaudière handed over the running of the Château Pesquie estate to their two sons, Alexandre and Frédéric, who immediately set about converting the domain to organic farming.
They are blessed with vineyards in an enviable location, ideally situated at the crossroads between the Alpine and Mediterranean worlds. An average altitude of the vineyards of more than 300 metres and the wide variation of temperatures between days and nights create an excellent physiological balance in the vines, adding colour, concentration and balance to their wines.
I think their ?Terrasses Blanc?, a blend of Viognier, Roussanne and Clairette, is the perfect Spring wine. It combines an alluring aromatic character with delightful freshness and balance, ensuring that it is the ideal partner for classic British Spring ingredients such as asparagus ? a key component of all my favourite dishes at this time of year!
Enjoy a bottle of Les Terrasses Blanc with our new Spring À La Carte menu.
