Bursting with violets, lavender and deep blue fruits, this beautiful, expression of Syrah is firm on the palate with fine tannins that make the wine easy to drink now.  And still, if you can resist, this wine could develop gracefully for at least a couple of decades.  If you are a fan, this beauty will give a much more expensive Cote Rotie a run for its money.  


Artemia is one of the three single vineyards of Château Pesquié (with Ascensio and Silica). It offers an outstanding Northern Rhône style syrah expression with a very fresh and crisp profile. Artemia takes its name from ancient Greek and means « good health » and « integrity ».


Located at about 400 m (1 300 feet), it is one of our highest plots. South-West orientation, terroir of limestone gravels. We work in our vineyard according to biodynamic practices since 2015.


80 % Syrah (yields of about 35hl/ha) 20 % Grenache (yields of about 30hl/ha)


Grapes are picked at an optimal maturity, but a great attention is devoted to keeping a balanced pH, fully destemmed. One month maceration, extremely gentle and minimal extraction. No fining. Aging for 12 to 15 months, in concrete vat (40%), in barrels of 225 L (30%) and 600 L demi-muids (30%). Bottled at the Château.


Color: Purple Nose: Aromatic nose, with notes of violet flower, licorice, spices and fresh blackberry. Mouth: The palate has a fresh and velvety texture, very balanced and very subtle, with aromas of strawberry, raspberry and violet flower, with a long and slightly peperry finish
