A fruity wine bursting with vibrant red-berried fruit, juicy
wild strawberry and redcurrant complemented by sweet
spice together with a hint of graphite.
Producer Note
Domaine la Provenquière is a 155-hectare estate, located in the centre of a triangle
formed by three villages - Capestang, Maureilhan and Puisserguier - not far from Béziers
in the Languedoc. The beautiful château dates back to the 15th century and acquired
its name from its 17th century owner Jean Provenquier. The estate was acquired by the
Robert family in 1954 and it is now in the hands of the third generation who combine
cutting-edge technology with careful vineyard management to create a wide selection
of wines from their estate vineyards. The estate is certified as HVE3, demonstrating its
commitment to the environment, biodiversity and sustainable viticulture.
Vintage
2020 was a classic vintage for Domaine la Provenquière. The mild, wet winter
replenished the soil water reserves, essential for nourishing the vines during the hot
summer that followed. Spring saw humid conditions, stimulating good physiological
development of the vines. A hot, dry summer ensued, allowing the grapes to reach
excellent maturity. Harvest took place later than usual, with the grapes showing
excellent varietal characteristics.
Vineyard
The vines are grown on a clay-limestone hillside and are pruned according to the
Guyot method. Certified HVE3, the vineyard is farmed sustainably and uses sexual
confusion of predators in place of insecticides. The use of phytosanitary products is kept
to a minimum and hedges are planted to increase the biodiversity within the vineyard.
Water resources are carefully preserved, important in this warm, dry Mediterranean
climate. The vines benefit from cooling influence from the Mediterranean Sea,
promoting a refreshing character in the berries. The grapes are harvested when they
have reached optimum maturity in the cool of the night, to maintain the quality.
Winemaking
The cuvée was vinified without the addition of sulphur. The best parcels of fruit were
carefully selected before undergoing short pre-fermentation maceration, to extract fruit
flavours, aromas and desired levels of structure-giving tannins. Vinification took place in
a combination of temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and concrete vats,
without the influence of oak, to retain the pure fruit character. Fermentation with
selected yeasts was monitored at 23 to 25°C, with frequent pump overs. The wine was
aged in concrete vats prior to being gently fined, filtered and bottled.
Tasting Note
An appealing, fruity wine bursting with aromas of vibrant red-berried fruit. Juicy notes of
wild strawberry and redcurrant are complemented by sweet spice, silky tannins and a
soft finish.
