Triennes Rosé in Magnum
2017 Triennes Rosé Magnum
Domaine de Triennes
£110/6 in bond
Triennes began as a collaboration between Burgundy powerhouses Domaine Dujac and Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, with Rémy Laugier and Jeremy Seysses currently at the helm, and Jeremy's wife, oenologist Diana Snowden-Seysses consulting. With all the winemaking expertise thrown behind this project, it's no wonder that this rosé is a cut above. As Fiona Beckett, writing for Decanter, says, it is immensely popular with sommeliers and casual wine drinkers alike, having become "almost certainly the hippest rosé in London right now, on tap in many of the most talked-about restaurants."
Quintessential Provençale rosé, this is made mainly from Cinsault with a little Grenache, Merlot and Syrah. The grapes are harvested at night to keep them as cool as possible and the wine is bottled in early spring to both meet demand and keep freshness. Pale in colour and bright and clean, it is a real delight.
