This wine 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.
In 1989, two Burgundians, Jacques Seysses, founder of Domaine Dujac, and Aubert de Villaine, joined by their Parisian friend, Michel Macaux, went in search of new vineyards. Their attention turned to southern France where they were convinced the potential for great wines was enormous.
After a long search, they discovered the Domaine du Logis de Nans in the Var, north-east of Marseille. Convinced by their Burgundian experience that the quality of great wines comes from the vineyard, the new owners began by investing heavily in the renewal and the tending of the vines. The focus on the vineyard remains a priority to this day.
Stylistically the aim is purity in the expression of the terroir. For the whites and the rosé, the foremost consideration is the finesse of fruit and freshness of the wines. The cool microclimate which Triennes naturally enjoys favours the acidity in the wines. For the reds, the desire is to produce structured wines which combine ripe fruit with complexity, elegance and finesse.
Triennes has invested heavily in its vineyards. From the very beginning an ambitious replanting program was put in place. The aim was to recreate a healthy vineyard, with vines and rootstocks adapted to the local growing conditions.
"We manage the vines as naturally as possible and in harmony with the environment. For instance, we grow a cover crop every second row to help us control vigour, limit erosion and help to assimilate organic material. In 2008 Triennes began its organic conversion with Ecocert which should lead to its certification in the near future."
