    Description

    Chateau pesquie An history of three generations of winemakers The history of Château Pesquié is the story of a family passionate about the Ventoux region. They recognized the region’s potential to make great wine and set out to uncover this hidden treasure. This family adventure lasting three generations began early in 1970’s with Odette & René Bastide, and then in 1985 with Edith & Paul Chaudière. The first vintage is born in 1990. In 2003, & Paul’s two sons, Alexandre & Frédéric took over the Domaine. They are continuing the family tradition to harness the potential of the outstanding Ventoux terroir and to make extraordinary wines. The terroir: clay-and-limestone slopes and outstanding microclimate Ideally situated at the crossroads between the Alpine and Mediterranean worlds, the Château Pesquié vineyards enjoy an outstanding microclimate on the clay-and-limestone slopes of the majestic Mont Ventoux, known as “Giant of Provence”. The southern slopes of Mont Ventoux are blessed with great levels of sunshine (an annual average of 8 hours of sunshine per day with up to 12 hours per day in July). This mediterranean climate reinforced by the Mistral, the frequent northern wind, is ideal for the cultivation of healthy vines. The average altitude of 300 meters and the difference of temperature between days and nights create excellent physiological balance in the vines and add colour, natural acidity and tannins. In the vineyards: sustainable vine cultivation and organic farming The vines are an average of 40 years old. Some were planted a century ago. Prompted by a concern for sustainable development since he began cultivating vines in 1985, Paul Chaudière immediately became involved in sustainable farming. Today we are converting to organic farming and our first 10 hectares have been certified since July 2011. To face global warming and to get the best maturity, our farming methods have been evolving for some years : high trellising (1.70m) progressively adapted to the whole vineyard, exclusively organic soil improvement, soil tilling on and under each row, etc… The grape varieties are : grenache, syrah, cinsault, carignan, mourvèdre, roussanne, viognier, clairette, etc. In the winery : A well-integrated cellar into its ecosystem Driven by a meticulous dedication to selection and expression of terroir, the Chaudière family controls every stage in the process, from vinification to bottling. The Château Pesquié cellars are built as an extension from a slope and are thus perfectly integrated into the landscape. They are covered in a layer of topsoil that has been well planted and provides good heat insulation. A significant photovoltaic project has started in July 2011. Winemaking methods combine fidelity to tradition with the latest techniques. Visit Château Pesquié Whatever your wine culture might be, Chateau Pesquié will be very happy to receive you at the winery. You are welcome to discover a gorgeous site, with its Provençal Chateau from the XVIII° century and its majestic driveway. Have a walk among the vines following our “vintner path”: you will enjoy beautiful views of the Ventoux mountain, the village of Mormoiron, etc… Visit the ageing cellar and taste a large range of wines and terroir products (among which the olive oil of the estate).
