100% Grenache

'Paradou' in the old Provençal language, the 'langue d’oc', does not mean 'paradise' but refers to the old watermills that once dotted the landscape. Le Paradou is indeed a former watermill owned by the Chaudière Family and the guest house of Château Pesquié. Frédéric & Alexandre Chaudière, the new generation of the family, have selected great Grenache plots, slightly elevated, to create a fresh and crunchy wine.

Robert Parker calls Château Pesquié one of his ‘all-time favourite producers in France‘ and ‘a phenomenal bargain’ and we agree. Since 2014, when we first imported the Pesquié wines, both the Paradou and Terrasses Rouge have been two of our top-selling wines.

From hillside vineyards below Mont Ventoux, these old-vine Grenache vineyards lie at around 300m in the Ventoux appellation. Limestone clay soils in a cooler part of the Southern Rhône allow the wines to achieve tremendous purity and elegance. ‘The wines sell for a song, yet always deliver high-quality, loads of character and impeccably made profiles,’ says Jeb Dunnuck of The Wine Advocate

Tasting notes:
'One of the largest estates in the Ventoux, Château Pesquié is now completely organic, with the goal of being biodynamic in 2019. The Chaudière brothers, Alexandre and Frédéric, deserve great credit for building on their parents founding vision. The 2017 Vin de France Le Paradou Grenache was tasted as the final blend from tank, with bottling scheduled for July. This medium to full-bodied wine is loaded with dusty black cherries. Round, ample and ripe, it's even a bit chocolaty-rich but remains very smashable. Half of the crop was lost because of frost.' – Wine Advocate, 88-90/100
