dried apricot and quince with white floral top notes and a

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 where the soils include pockets of
gravel. The older vines on the estate are up to 45 to 50-years old and are trained
according to the Cordon Royat method, producing low yields of concentrated juice.
The younger vines 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, providing natural balancing freshness in
the fruit. 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 temperature controlled stainless steel
tanks. Short skin contact maceration took place, imparting flavour, aromas and gentle
structure from the skins to the must. Fermentation followed with selected yeasts at 14°C,
once fermented through to dryness, the young wine was then aged on its fine lees in
stainless steel tanks to retain the purity of fruit.
