Chateau Pesquie Silica 2019 (France)
Wine Advocate, 93 Points: The third vintage of this Grenache cuvée (it includes 10% Cinsault), the 2019 Ventoux Silica is maturing in a combination of one concrete egg (20% of the blend) and demi-muids. It shows wonderfully perfumed notes of potpourri, roses, cherries and strawberries on the nose and is full-bodied yet silky on the palate, with plenty of concentration and flavor and a long, tannic but mouthwatering finish.
Jeb Dunnuck, 92 Points: The 2019 Ventoux Silica is based on 90% Grenache and 10% Cinsault, and it's always a more feminine, elegant wine in the lineup. Ripe strawberries, cherries, sappy herbs, and floral notes all define the nose, and it's medium to full-bodied, has ripe, chalky tannins, good balance, and solid length. It doesn't have the seamlessness found in the 2020, and I suspect will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age.
