Domaine de Triennes
In 1989, two Burgundians, Jacques Seysses of Domaine Dujac and Aubert de Villaine, joined by their friend Michel Macaux, went in search of new vineyards. Their attention turned to Provence where they were convinced the potential for great wines was enormous. After a long search, they discovered Domaine du Logis de Nans in the Var, east of Aix en Provence. They were immediately attracted to its gently sloping hillside and southern exposure. They say its cool microclimate and clay limestones soils are ideal for viticulture. The estate was renamed Triennes, a reference to Triennia, the festival of Bacchus. The prefix 'Tri' serves as a reminder of the three original partners. Convinced by their Burgundian experience that the quality of great wines comes from the vineyards, they invested heavily in the renewal and tending of the wines. Stylistically the aim is always purity in the expression of the terroir.
