The Story

Starting with the inaugural 2005 vintage, the first after Christian Moueix purchased the property, Providence has become one of the most exciting properties in all of Bordeaux.  The vineyard is picture-perfect, and had always been well-managed even before Christian Moueix purchased it.  The changes Christian made were, as in all his vineyards, the elimination of herbicides and chemicals, and a specific system of single guyot pruning that best allows easy circulation of sap within the vine.  There is no formula for pruning, each vine is pruned differently, treated as an individual.  At harvest time, there are an extraordinary 300 pickers covering the Moueix vineyard patches that ultimately total only around 200 acres.  That is the definition of making wine in the vineyard, and not in the winery

.

As since its first release, Providence has a darker fruit profile and is more powerful than La Fleur-Pétrus.  It’s a power that is apparent right away and stays right on through the long, long finish.  An extremely impressive wine, and utterly fascinating in how different it is from La Fleur-Pétrus, just down the road; come to think of it, Providence is perhaps more like Pétrus in character than La Fleur-Pétrus.

Written Notes

Dark, ruby red colour. Lovely, complex nose with ripe blackcurrants, charming toastiness and gentle roasted coffee nuances. Medium-bodied palate is silky with very refined tannins, ripe black fruit, gentle, sophisticated and immensely long focused aftertaste with some Asian spiciness. The aftertaste is bit closed with woody and one-dimensional flavours. However, neat and sophisticated wine that do well with roasted veal and truffle raviolis.
