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
2019 marks a return to a more Mediterranean profile than the previous year. There was
less rain than in 2018; the rain fell mainly in autumn and winter, with a marked absence
during the summer which experienced a series of heatwaves. Drought from June
onwards meant that managing the water levels was a key issue in the vineyards. The
vines were in excellent health at harvest and the grapes show an intense
concentration of flavour.
Vineyard
The vines are grown on a clay-limestone hillside and are pruned according to the
Guyot method. Marselan is a crossing between Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon,
producing fruit-driven wines. A Languedoc variety, created in Marseilhan in 1961,
usually found in blends, it has come into its own at Domaine la Provenquière. The
Marselan vines are planted on a north-facing plot, protecting them from the heat of the
sun, and encouraging balancing freshness in the fruit. 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 in the cool of the night, when they have reached optimum
maturity to maintain the quality.
Winemaking
The grapes were carefully selected and vinified in a combination of temperature
controlled stainless steel tanks and concrete tanks to retain the fruit-forward
characteristics of this variety. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts at 23 to
25°C, with vatting time lasting 20 days, in order to extract the desired levels of colour,
flavour and tannins. The wine was then aged on its fine lees in concrete vats until being
gently fined and filtered prior to bottling.
