Description

Experience the epitome of finesse and elegance with Chateau Pesquie Silica. This exceptional wine takes its name from the terroir of sand in which it thrives, bringing forth a wine of exceptional finesse and brilliance. Crafted with care using biodynamic farming practices, Silica is a true testament to the harmonious relationship between nature and winemaking.

Silica is a single vineyard of Château Pesquié, planted in a sandy soil with a slight presence of limestone gravels. Since 2015, our vineyard has been nurtured using biodynamic practices, ensuring the health and quality of the vines. This commitment to biodynamic farming highlights the importance of sustainability and the preservation of the terroir. Silica is a reflection of this philosophy, capturing the brightness and sparkling qualities that define this exceptional wine.

Crafted from a blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Cinsault, Silica undergoes a meticulous winemaking process to showcase its delicate flavors. The grapes are gently fermented in eggs and concrete tanks, allowing for a maceration period of less than four weeks with soft infusion techniques. This gentle approach minimizes extraction, resulting in a wine that embodies finesse and exceptional quality. Without any fining, Silica remains pure and true to its essence. The wine is then aged for 12 to 15 months in a careful selection of 600 L barriques and a cement egg, nurturing its complexity and depth. Finally, Silica is bottled at the Château, capturing its essence and ready to be enjoyed.

In the glass, Silica enchants with its ruby color, inviting you to discover its delicate and intense aromas. Delight in the floral notes and fresh red berries that dance on the nose. The first sip reveals a wine that is both bright and juicy, offering a wealth of finesse and silky tannins. Nuances of crisp berries, kirch, and white pepper tantalize the palate, creating a refined and delightful tasting experience.

Silica is a versatile wine, best enjoyed at 18°C (64°F), and pairs wonderfully with a range of dishes. Whether it’s charcuteries or grilled meat, the delicate nature of Silica finds harmony alongside lighter and refined cuisines. Enrich your dining experience with the elegance and sophistication of Chateau Pesquie Silica.

Critics have praised Chateau Pesquie Silica for its brilliance and character. Jeb Dunnuck awarded it an impressive 95/100, applauding its beautiful richness without weight. At the Decanter Wine Awards 2021, Silica earned a well-deserved gold medal with a remarkable score of 96/100.
