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.
A beautiful lemon yellow color. Complex but generous aromas of yellow fruits, apricot, peach and honey, but also of lilac and acacia flowers. A fresh palate with mineral notes, hints of yellow fruits and white flowers. Perfect for an aperitif, a crab or with shrimps. Also great for all kinds of exotic and spicy food.
