Grape(s): Cinsault, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot
Localization Provence, Southern France, France
Tasting Notes: This wine has a bouquet of strawberries and white flowers with hints of vanilla. It has the harmony and elegance that has earned world-wide appreciation of the rosés of Provence. Triennes Rosé is the perfect accompaniment to a sunny summer afternoon.
Notes: Harvested at night so that the grapes are cool upon arrival in the winery. Pressed after a few hours of skin contact. Fermented at low temperature until dry.
The Domain: Two of Burgundy’s greatest names – Jacques Seysses, founder of Domaine Dujac, and Aubert de Villaine, co-owner of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti – are the partners behind this pioneering property in Provence, northeast of Marseille and due east of Aix-en-Provence. Over the years, they have transformed this stunning 46-hectare site into one of the top wine estates in Southern France.
Convinced by their burgundian experience that the quality of great wines comes from the vineyard, the owners began by investing heavily in the renewal and the tending of the vines. The focus on the vineyard remains a priority to this day.
For the whites and the rosé, the foremost consideration is the finesse of fruit and freshness of the wines. The cool microclimate which Triennes naturally enjoys favors the acidity in the wines.
