Chateau PesquieThe 2007 vintage is a vintage of extreme balance with the intensity of 2005 and the softness of the 2006.  A dark red color, this fresh and elegant, medium to full-bodied wine has notes of black berries and spicy aromas like pepper.  Pair with dishes such as pizzas, kebabs, charcuterie, vegetable pies or salads to more ambitious cuisine like terrines, poultry, roasted or grilled meats.  For more information, visit Chateau Pesquie.
