About the Wine :
This word comes from the Latin terras, meaning "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 well-protected, 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.
Silver in color with a golden touch. Citrus and white floral nose, fresh on the palate with flavors of pear, peach and citrus.
