After a long search, they discovered the Domaine du Logis de Nans in the Var, east of Aix en Provence. They were immediately attracted to its gently sloping hillside with southern exposure. They saw its cool microclimate and its clay and limestone soils as ideal for viticulture. The estate was renamed Triennes, a reference to Triennia, the festival for Bacchus, which was held every three years during Roman times. The prefix "Tri" serving as a reminder of the three original partners.
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. This wine will seduce you by its freshness and elegance. 70% Cinsault, 25% Grenache, and 5% Merlot
2017 Review: Very pale in colour. Simple pleasures done well here, delivering a wine for easy drinking rather than contemplation, and there’s nowt wrong with that. Flavours are a musky light strawberry with rose water, pretty much dry, with a little chalkiness to the texture and a solid finish. Nicely done. Tasted: Nov 18; Alcohol: 12.5%; Price: $25; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2018 - 2021; Rated: 91 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
