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
In 1989, two Burgundians, Jacques Seysses, founder of Domaine Dujac, and Aubert de Villaine (DRC) dipped their toe in Rosè! The 2018 Triennes displays a delicious red-berry perfume with hints of watermelon and pink grapefruit. Subtle citrus and verbena notes lift the palate, combined with generous acidity and a moreish saline note on the finish. This is a wonderfully balanced, refreshing and vibrant rosé. Drink now to 2020. Fiona Hayes; BBR
