Domaine de Triennes Vin de Pays du Var Rose 2014

Two of Burgundy's greatest names Jacques Seysses, founder of Domaine Dujac, and Aubert de Villaine, co-owner of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti own this stunning, 113 acre property in Provence, which is recognized as one of the top wine estates in Southern France. Unlike most of the vineyards in the area which are planted on valley floors, Triennes sits on a south-facing slope at about 1,400-1,450 feet above sea level. The soils are rich in limestone and low in organic matter. The relatively cool microclimate helps maintain freshness, vibrancy and balance in the wines. The estate is named after the triennia festivities in the honor of Bacchus that took place every three years in Roman times. [+]
