Triennes Les Aureliens Rouge
"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.
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 favors 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
