Domaine de la Prose

 

Domaine de la Prose

10 minutes away from downtown Montpellier and 6 miles from the Mediterranean Sea, Bertrand de Mortillet farms 17 hectares of vines in the Coteaux du Languedoc appellation of St. Georges d’Orques.  The soils in this corner of the Languedoc consists primarily of clay, limestone and scree, over which a patchwork of different varieties from Vermentino to Syrah are cultivated.

Bertrand’s parents Alexandre & Patricia helped establish Domaine de la Prose, and they exacted considerable influence in their recommendation that Vermentino be planted here. With family roots and long time winemaker friends in Corsica, Alexandre found the soils and climate in St. Georges d’Orques to be very similar to Patrimonio where Vermentino does so well. After formal viticultural studies in Bordeaux, Bertrand's first harvest at Domaine de la Prose was in 1995. Since then, he has managed the estate and taken Domaine de la Prose to new heights.

All of the grapes at the domaine are manually harvested, carefully sorted and transported a short distance back to the winery.  Vinification for both red and white is through a gravity flow system in order to ensure freshness.  The wines range from racy and crisp, to modestly oaked.  Domaine de la Prose has been organically certified since 2004. With the 2016 vintage, all wines from Domaine de la Prose will be Demeter certified.

 
 

Domaine de la Prose "Cadières" Coteaux du Languedoc Blanc

A brisk white with a nod stylistically to the Mediterranean Sea a short 10km away. Notes of citrus, white peach, crushed rocks and fresh herbs make it a perfect match to seafood paella.

 

Domaine de la Prose "Cadières" Saint-Georges d'Orques

The Cadières rouge is a great primer on the wines of Domaine de la Prose. Nuances of fresh blackberries, plums, lavender and cracked pepper, along with fine tannins and a snap of freshness on the finish.

 

Domaine de la Prose "Emruns" Coteaux du Languedoc Blanc

Elegance and opulence characterize the Embrums blanc from Domaine de la Prose. Poire William, yellow stone fruit and preserved citrus notes. Great with poultry tagines, grilled fish, brebis or chevre.

 

Domaine de la Prose "Embruns" Grès de Montpellier

Les Embruns rouge delivers plenty of substance and character with this syrah based red. Dark plums, blackcurrant and warm gravel, along with ripe tannins and touch of damp earth on the finish.
