LA VIE EN ROSE
Two of Burgundy’s greatest names –Jacques Seysses, founder of Domaine Dujac, and Aubert de Villaine, co-owner of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti – are the partners behind this pioneering property in Provence.
Convinced that great wines could be produced in the south of France, the two icons of Burgundy began searching for a vineyard in the late 1980’s. After a long search, they discovered the Domaine du Logis de Nans in the Var, east of Aix en Provence. They were immediately attracted to its gently sloping hillside with southern exposure. They saw its cool microclimate and its clay and limestone soils as ideal for viticulture. The Estate was renamed Triennes, a reference to Triennia, the festival for Bacchus, which was held every three years during Romain times.
Two decades later we can say that they have proven they were right producing great red, white and rosé wines using local grapes!
