2007 Chateau Providence Pomerol by Jean-Pierre Moueix
Vintage : 2007
Country : France
Region : Bordeaux
Rare. JPM Family.
Made in a masculine, virile, full-bodied style with lots of density and power, the 2007 Providence is atypical for this vintage. Stylistically, it leans toward a style similar to the famed Chateau Trotanoy. Meaty black currant, earth, and forest floor characteristics combined with pure fruit and considerable structure make for a wine that requires several years of cellaring. It should evolve for 10-15 years.
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. With now such a limited amount of Providence out there, and no more coming, Benchmark is proud to be a home of the remaining bottles.
