The Triennes estate was founded in the late 1980s by three enthusiasts. Two Burgundian winemakers, Jacques Seysses from Domaine Dujac and Aubert de Villaine from the iconic Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, joined forces with a Parisian friend, Michel Macaux, and began their search for Mediterranean terroirs that would produce fine wines and fully express the richness of this wine region.
Their search ended in 1989 with an estate called "Le Logis de Nans".
A tribute to the Triennia, a religious festival celebrated every three years under the Roman Empire, and referring to the adventure inspired by these three partners, the estate was renamed "Triennes".
Applying their Burgundian experience and knowledge, the three partners carried out major work to renew and maintain the vineyard (replanting, grafting, massal selections) in order to produce refined wines that reflect the quality of their terroir.
Facing the Sainte-Baume mountain and situated next to Mont Aurélien, the Triennes estate’s 46-hectare vineyard benefits from an ideal microclimate due to its southern exposure, its altitude between 350 and 400 metres and also the cool nights that favor a long vegetative cycle.
Controlling the yields, the wines produced by the Triennes estate express a beautiful acidity that exalts a real complexity.
A constant quest for excellence and with the utmost respect for the environment, the Triennes estate bears an Organic Farming certificate since 2011.
This 2021 Triennes rose wine by the Triennes estate is a benchmark among wines from the Mediterranean appellation.
