Overview

For many years we sold an easy-going Viognier from Chateau Pesquie but when additional plantings of Grenache Blanc, Clairette, and Roussanne became available we worked with the Chaudière family to create a Terrasses Blanc to complement the Rouge and Rosé that have been popular staples in the US market for over twenty years. Fermented and aged entirely in tank, the classic floral and pit fruit flavors and aromas of the Viognier are tempered by the crispness of Clairette and the creamy weight of Roussanne and Grenache Blanc.
