Acme of the single vineyard trilogy of Château Pesquie (with Artemia and Silica). Ascensio outlines the intensity and the purity of some our best grenaches.
The Chaudière Family chose this name to celebrote the tradition of the ascent of the Mont Ventoux which goes back to the XIVth century and Petrarch. It also symbolises the magic of altitude terroirs. Ascensio is only produced in very small quantity (less than 3 000 bottles) and only on great vintages.
