Domaine de la Provenquière, Vermentino


We have run out of stock for this item.

This is a delicious and delightful white that comes from the very fashionable Vermentino vineyards in the south of France. With flavours of peach, lime and blossom, it's no wonder that these wines are becoming the must-have for so many restaurant wine lists. Fresh, fruity, vibrant with a nervy edge, you get so much more than you expect from South of France whites and so much more than you pay for!

If you think that Vermentino sounds very Italian, you'd be right. BUT this stunner from the South of France is actually one of many bottlings of this grape (mostly called Rolle in France) that has created a wave of interest in other country's production of it. The familiar stone-fruit and apple, citrus-oriented flavours seem to be enhanced by fresher and livelier influences than all but the very best Italian examples. This one is no exception - full of flavour and vitality, it is a mouthwatering charmer from the village of Capestang near Béziers in the heart of the Languedoc. 

This wine comes from a beautiful estate - if it were in Bordeaux, it would be world-renowned and its wines would command serious prices! Established in the 1400s, there are records of vines dating from the 1700s and as the Château was developed in the following centuries, under the watch of Napoleon among others, and then, after the Second World War, the whole thing was restarted when bought by the Robert-Boularand family.

Now in the hands of the fourth generation, they farm in lots of the best Languedoc locations, including Saint-Chinian. This wine is just like they are: a thumbprint of the region - truly representative of the soil, grapes and climate that you'd expect from the South of France.

Amazing service from the get go!
I emailed Chris looking for wine recommendations for a birthday gift. Got a really speedy, helpful reply and not only that but he hand delivered it on time to the birthday girl wishing her a happy birthday. Absolutely bowled over by the service. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Could not recommend The Allotment enough. The selection is fantastic and each wine that I've drank from them has been utterly phenomenal. Delivery was no hassle and I had the wine at my door in 2 days. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

A great experience ordering from The Allotment Wine Company. A wide variety of wines to try something new and at good prices with super quick delivery! Really convenient too as opposed to trying to find parking!
N. Dowling
Delicious and interesting range of wines delivered promptly to my door. Not far off that lovely feeling of coming back laden from a good wine store but without any of the traffic or the worry of breaking the wine en route (very impressive travel wrap).
