In 1989 two legends of Burgundy teamed up in Provence to craft three honest and affordable wines from a high altitude vineyard in the Var region. Since that time Triennes has become the staple of restaurants and sommelier's fridges across the country.
Jacques Seysses (Domaine Dujac) and Aubert de Villaine (Domaine de la Romanée-Conti), friends of many years, found a perfect microclimate tucked into the hills of Provence 18 miles from the Mediterranean. Given the collaborators pedigree, it should come as little surprise that their success begins in the vineyard. Upon reviewing soil samples they chose this specific hillside made up of the similar limestone and clay based soils they knew so well from Burgundy.
The red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The never-ending warm sun and dry conditions of Provence are perfect for these two varieties that here show forward blackberry, blueberry, and plum notes. Having a full bodied red blend on hand is always a necessity, and this delivers vintage in and vintage out. The ideal pop-and-pour red for every occasion!
