    Description:

    Domaine Triennes was founded in 1989 by one of the owners of the legendary Burgundy producer Domaine Romanée-Conti, Aubert de Villaine. "Les Auréliens" is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, aged 12 months in oak barrels. It has aromas of red fruit with hints of Procencal herbs and spices. The Palate is like biting into a ripe, juicy plum, wiht lingering fine tannins on the finish.

    Variety Description

    Cabernet Sauvignon

    Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the world's most widely recognised red wine grape varieties. It is grown in nearly every major wine producing country among a diverse spectrum of climate. Cabernet Sauvignon became internationally recognised through its prominence in Bordeaux wines where it is often blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The classic profile of Cabernet Sauvignon tends to be full-bodied wines with high tannins and noticeable acidity that contributes to the wine's ageing potential.

    Syrah

    Syrah (also known as Shiraz) is a dark-skinned grape variety grown throughout the world and used primarily to produce red wine. The style and flavour profile of wines made from Syrah is influenced by the climate where the grapes are grown with moderate climates (such as the northern Rhone Valley) tending to produce medium to full-bodied wines with medium to high levels of tannins and flavours of blackberry, mint and black pepper notes. In hot climates (such as the Barossa Valley of Australia), Syrah is more consistently full-bodied with softer tannin, jammier fruit and spice notes of liquorice, anise and earthy leather. In many regions the acidity and tannin levels of Syrah allows to have favorable aging potential.

    Country Description

    France

    Practically all the most famous grape varieties used in the world's wines are French varieties, and wine is produced all throughout France. France is the second largest wine producer in the world after Italy. The wines produced range from expensive high-end wines sold internationally to more modest wines usually only seen within France. In many respects, French wines have more of a regional than a national identity, as evidenced by different grape varieties, production methods and different classification systems in the various regions. Some of the more famous wine regions in France include Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Loire, Chablis and the Rhône valley.

    Region Description

    Provence

    Provence wine region is located in the southeast of France. The region is known predominantly for its rosé wine, though wine critics such as Tom Stevenson believe that the region's best wines are the spicy, full-flavoured red wines. Rosé wine currently accounts for more than half of the production of Provence wine, with red wine accounting for about a third of the region's production. The main grape variety throughout Provence is Mourvèdre, which is the primary component in many red wines and rosés. It is often blended with Grenache and Cinsault, with the latter being used as a significant component in most rosé. Other significant grape varieties, used primarily in blending, include Braquet, Calitor, Folle and Tibouren. The major white wine grapes of Provence include the Rhône varieties of Bourboulenc, Clairette, Grenache blanc, Marsanne and Viognier as well as Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc, Semillon, Rolle and Ugni blanc.
