Started by Burgundy legends Jacques Seysses and Aubert de Villaine in 1989, the success of this Provençal brainchild shouldn't come as a surprise. Triennes impresses each year for the delicate and floral qualities that are indicative of the best Provence. For me, the best rosés must be in the value realm, and over the years, it's become clear that this category has little room for competition.

The Triennes estate is situated on a high-altitude parcel of limestone and clay soils just 18 miles from the Mediterranean Sea. No doubt, the wine's finish is driven by salinity and ocean breeze, taking me back to my visit to this picturesque estate. As usual, 2020 is mostly Cinsault blended with small portions of Grenache, Syrah, and Merlot.
