This family-run estate lies in the tiny hamlet of Saint Marcel d’Ardeche, 45 miles northwest of Avignon. The area is rich with ancient ruins, including the vestiges of a roman outpost. The Roman coin on the label is one of many found in the vineyard.
Balance and great finesse are the hallmarks at Domain de Couron. Using sustainable farming techniques, Jean-Luc and Marie-Lise Dorthe (the 9th generation of the family to produce wine) craft, with loving hands, their wines.
Honeyed apricot and pear aromas that are sweetly floral with subtle hints of cinnamon greet you with this wine. Good structure and acidity play against the fruity flavor profile in this soft and dry white, which brings back real summer (not the San Francisco kind) in just one sip.
Made by the Franzia family’s Bronco Wine Co. in Napa, this wine is predominantly Viognier with extremely small quantities of Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay and Muscat. It has abundant aromas of honeysuckle, stone fruit, apricot and tropical fruit. The Viognier finishes crisp and clean with hints of vanilla and fruit that is pleasantly balanced. Enjoy this wine with fruit dishes, shellfish, and other seafood.
In 1989, Jacques Seysses of Domaine Dujac and Aubert de Villaine of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti joined by their Parisian friend, Michel Macaux, purchased a 45 ha property south of Aix-en-Provence on a south-facing hillside. Their vision was to set the benchmark of quality in a region that had not yet reached its full potential. The estate was renamed Triennes as a reference to Triennia, the festival for Bacchus that was historically held every three years during Roman times. The prefix “Tri” is also a reminder of the three original partners.
The wine is 100% organic Viognier from 25- to 30-year-old vines sourced from the clay, limestone soils of Provence, made in 100% in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness. There is an intense perfume of apricot, honeysuckle, white flowers and lavender. This wine strikes a beautiful balance between aromatic richness, crisp acidity and mineral structure.
