Triennes Sainte Fleur Viognier
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.
