Description

This is a partnership between Jacques Seysses of Domaine Dujac, Aubert de Villaine of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and a mutual friend, Michel Macaux. This 2020 rosé is mostly Cinsault, with Grenache, Syrah and Merlot for seasoning. The pale colour, vibrant strawberry fruit and refreshing finish make this perfect for a sunny afternoon, but there is hidden depth here. Subtle spice notes and a juicy mid-palate make it ideal for spiced food; its cleansing acidity and stony texture pair beautifully with salads and cold cuts. Drink now to summer 2022.

About this WINE

Domaine de Triennes

Domaine de Triennes

Domaine de Triennes was founded in 1989 by two superstars of Burgundy, Jacques Seyss of Domaine Dujac and Aubert de Villaine of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. This estate, high up in the hills of the Var region of Provence, is fast establishing itself as one of the finest in the region.

Situated deep in truffle country, vines have been grown here for two thousand years. The name of the estate comes from the triennia, the festivities held in honour of Bacchus that took place every three years in Roman times.

This 40 hectare domaine boasts a range of grape varieties including Syrah, Viognier, Carignan, Cinsault, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The cool nights and slow ripening produces top quality fruit that is shaped into ripe but extremely elegant wines by Jacques's talented son, Jeremy, who runs the estate.

Domaine de Triennes have an organic Ecocert certification and their St. Fleur Viogner is certified Biodynamic as of the 2011 vintage.

Coteaux Varois

Coteaux Varois

Côteaux Varois lies in the heart of the Var department, and is sandwiched between two portions of the Côtes de Provence appellation.

It is was elevated to AOC status as recently as 1993 (having been upgraded from Vin de Pays to Vin Délimité de Qualité Supérieure in 1985). The region enjoys a Mediterranean climate, sheltered from the influences of extreme heat by the Sainte-Baume mountains. As a result, grapes are harvested in early November – two months later than the rest of Provence.

Rosé constitutes over 60 percent of the region’s production, followed by 35 percent red and a smattering of white wine.

Côteaux Varois is home to numerous grape varieties, the most prominent of which are Grenache, Cinsault, MourvèdreSyrah and Carignan, followed by the increasingly popular Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The principal white grapes include Viogner, Roussanne, Marsanne and Chardonnay.
