In 1989, two Burgundians, Jacques Seysses, founder of Domaine Dujac, and Aubert de Villaine, joined by their Parisian 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 the Domaine du Logis de Nans in the Var, east of Aix en Provence. They were immediately attracted to its gently sloping hillside with southern exposure. They saw its cool microclimate and its clay and limestone soils as ideal for viticulture.
The estate was renamed Triennes, a reference to Triennia, the festival for Bacchus, which was held every three years during Roman times.
The Les Aureliens Blanc is a blend of 1/3 Chardonnay 1/3 Viognier and 1/3 Rolle , this wine is made with a Burgundian approach to winemaking. It is partly fermented in barrels, part in stainless steel.
The flavours are rich and ripe with a bouquet of hazelnuts, exotic fruits and citrus. Round and ample texture balanced by bright, crisp acidity.
