Providence in located within the Center of Pomerol, and holds a mainline of history in the wine regions with mentioning’s that date back to 1800’s. Providence itself, originally known as Chateau La Providence but renamed in 2005, is of a rarity itself. The last vintage to be created under that name and estate was the 2012. The loss of active production was devastating to most. The vines that made this Merlot dominate Bordeaux blends were on average 30 years old. The production was low with around 1,200 cases of wine a year, at extremely high quality due to the concrete eggs used for fermentation, and 50% new French oak.
Another brilliant wine from Christian Moueix, the 2011 La Providence exhibits copious aromas of black raspberries, forest floor and a hint of spring flowers in its full-bodied, surprisingly rich, dense, creamy-textured personality. Long and opulent, this impressive Pomerol is a great success in this vintage. Consume it over the next 15+ years [93 Points, Robert Parker Jr. – April 2014, robertparker.com]
