Domaine de la Prose is beautifully located on a hilltop with a view both over the Mediterranean, the Pic St Loup mountains and Montpellier. Alexandre de Mortillet and his wife had a “coup de foudre” and bought the property in 1989. Today it is their son Bertrand, with a diploma from the wine faculty in Bordeaux, who is responsible for the winemaking. He has a talent that makes you think this will be one of the future stars in the region.
And what did he think of getting an education in Bordeaux? Very good he says. There they are better at organising things than “in the south” in Languedoc! The wines are very good, e.g. the white Cadière Blanc made from Vermentino (Rolle) and Grenache Blanc or the Grand Cuvée Rouge made from 90% syrah.
