70% Grenache / 30% Cinsault, Mourvedre, Syrah
"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.
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.
The Cadières rouge is a great primer on the wines of Domaine de la Prose. Fresh blackberries, plums, lavender and cracked pepper, along with fine tannins and a snap of freshness on the finish." - Importer
