Quintessence Chateau Pesquié, a surprisingly good wine

I tasted this Rhone Valley wine tonight and I was quite pleasantly surprised. I bought one bottle of Chateau Pesquié 2007 at one of Québec govt's monopoly wine stores (saq) almost two years ago. I kept it in the best conditions I could afford, but decided to finally taste it now (it has a 10 years aging rating). It is a really strong wine (14.8% alcohol) but with an excellent aroma and an exquisite taste. Goes nicely with strong taste meat but also, surprise, with chocolaty dessert (the high alcohol, I believe). Nice discovery. I'll try to get some more in my next wine rally.
