Rosé is a type of wine that incorporates some of the color from the grape skins, but not enough to qualify it as a red wine. It may be the oldest known type of wine, as it is the most straightforward to make with the skin contact method. The pink color can range from a pale “onion-skin” orange to a vivid near-purple, depending on the grape varieties used and winemaking techniques. Usually, the wine is labelled rosé in French, Portuguese, and English-speaking countries,rosado in Spanish, or rosato in Italian.
Domaine La Provenquière has been ruling the vineyard industry since the 15th century. Successively owned by Jean Provencher, the Marquis de Puisserguier in the 18th century, it was later transformed to its current state by Paul Teissonière, Counselor of Napoleon III, who acquired it in 1860. The Robert family became the owner in 1954. The vineyard, with an area of 155 hectares, is spread over three villages. The ideal terroir allows the production of a wide range of Pays d’Oc wines, in white, rosé and red.
All the grape varieties of Domaine La Provenquière are grown on suitable plots that can give great expression. The terroir are of several qualities, clay and limestone, river alluvium and blue marl. The diversity of grape varieties is an essential basis for the development of the range. Some wines are matured in oak barrels, others are more focused on fresh fruit aromas. The cellar, well-sized and well-equipped, allows all vinification, from the most traditional to the most technological.
