Provence Rosé with a Burgundy Twist (Dujac & DRC Partners!)
Domaine de Triennes!
"In the late 1980's Jacques Seysses, founder of Domaine Dujac, and Aubert de Villaine, co-owner of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, began searching for a vineyard in the south of France. The two icons of Burgundy, along with good friend Michel Macaux, were convinced that great wines could be produced in the Var, an area better known for quaffable roses than complex, world-class reds and whites." Domaine de Triennes (triennes.com and thesortingtable.com)
It is true. The Dujac Family joined by Aubert de Villaine established the Provence estate Domaine de Triennes in the 1980s. Today the Seysses Family lead by Jacques and his son Jeremy are running the day to day operations of this terrific little estate in Provence turning out a varying range of reds, whites and rosés.
The 2011 Domaine de Triennes Rosé has just arrived and is drinking absolutely terrific!
Showing that classic Provence edge, the wine possesses a good balance of fruit and mineral notes in the mouth and in the bouquet. Perfect for by the pool, sipping on the terrace and sharing with friends, the Triennes Rosé is an unpretentious wine that is extremely well crafted and actually quite serious on its own.
As the summer blaze of heat is upon us, this is the perfect wine to have a bottle or two cold and ready to go for any occasion.
