The impeccable vines have an average age of 30 years, and are planted on the gravel and clay of the plateau. After meticulous care in the vineyard as well as manual harvesting and sorting, fermentation takes place in steel tanks, and the wines are aged for 18 months in 33% new oak barrels. An elegant silkiness and a unique refinement are the signature of this wine.

Wine SpectatorThis is packed with fruit, but maintains a restrained feel overall, as the core of plum, blackberry and black currant seems content to wait for now. Richly layered, displaying seamless graphite and black tea notes that frame the finish, with a lovely tug of loam echoing on the very end. An impressive combination of density and polished poise. Best from 2016 through 2030.

Wine EnthusiastBoth rich and dense, this wine shows the ripeness of the Merlot in 2010. It has firm fruit, touches of dark chocolate and licorice. With its concentration, this small vineyard is now in good form, producing ageworthy wines.

James SucklingWonderful nose of forest fruits and flowers follow through to a full body, with ultra velvety tannnins and an intense finish. Juicy. 93-94

Wine AdvocateIt has closed down to some extent, but the 2010 Providence is made in a distinctive style with meaty charcuterie notes intermixed with spicy pepper, black currants, mocha, espresso roast and forest floor. This full-bodied, dense, rich wine was difficult to penetrate, but nevertheless, it has impressive richness, texture and length. The relatively high tannins suggest forgetting it for 5-6 years of cellaring, but it should last for 25-30 years.

Robert Parker, February 2013
