Presentation of the vineyard
Domaine Romanee-Conti in Burgundy is among wine enthusiasts known to be by far the most prestigious vineyards in the world. However, that one of the owners of Romanée-Conti, Aubert de Villaine, together with Jacques Seysse from Domaine Dujac in Morey-Saint-Denis, also has a vineyard in Provence is perhaps less well known. "Domaine Triennes" is located in Nans-les-Pins, some 30 kilometers to the north from the very well-known Bandoldistrict. The name "Triennes" comes from the Romans' "Trienna" which was a feast, at the time held every third year in honor of the wine god Bacchus. The winery at Domaine Triennes is since 3 years back in transition to be classified as organic wine and half of winemaking is already classified as being organic.
An elegant light yellow color with silver tints. Aromas of nuts, exotic fruits with some hints of citrus. Round and pleasant to the taste, with present but well-balanced acidity. A well-made chardonnaywine with dry and crispy notes which therefore ideally suits to shellfish such as oysters, crab or shrimps ..
