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. The Grenache Gris vines are planted on a north-facing plot, protecting
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 when they have reached optimum
maturity in the cool of the night, to maintain the quality.
Winemaking
This cuvée was vinified without the addition of sulphites. The grapes were carefully
selected after being exclusively harvested at night and were vinified in temperature
controlled stainless steel tanks. A long, slow fermentation took place with selected
yeasts at 15°C, followed by malolactic conversion, which rounded out the palate.
Gentle fining and filtration took place before bottling. The wine was vinified without the
influence of oak, to retain the fruit-forward character and the essence of the terroir.
Tasting Note
A refreshing and vibrant Grenache Gris with intense notes of white flowers and stone
fruits. Pure citrus notes are layered with red apple and exotic fruits on the textured
palate through to a crisp and zesty finish.
