Domaine de Triennes Rose

mainly Cinsault blended with Grenache, Syrah and Merlot ...Aromas of red and citrus fruit and melon. Round on the palate, harmonious and well-balanced. Freshness and elegance.

The first rosé of the year has arrived just in time for spring, and spring-like it its!  For a longtime fan of rosés, this beauty certainly does not disappoint!  Made from an exquisite blend of Syrah, Cinsault, Merlot, and Grenache grapes, the proportions of grapes in the Triennes Rosé were expertly chosen.  The merlot flavor, in particular, is more subdued than expected, being used as a traditional blending grape, with a delicate hint of softness and plum flavor perfect for use in a rosé.  And the 2010 Triennes Rosé was bottled young enough to keep the wine exceptionally fresh, unlike rosés I will not mention from previous years.

The Triennes Rosé is everything you’d expect from a wine where the grapes were harvested at just the right time–not too early, and not too late after ripening.  This helps explain why this rosé is elegantly balanced and delightfully aromatic with a luxurious nose that is sure to evoke an “ahhhh” of pleasure.  If you have never tried a rosé before, the 2010 Triennes Rosé should be your first.  It sets the perfect standard by which you can adequately judge rosés you encounter in the future.

Cinsault blended with Grenache, Syrah and Merlot. I note that this is “IGP Mediterranee” Importer: Negociants Very pale in colour. Simple pleasures done well here, delivering a wine for easy drinking rather than contemplation, and there’s nowt wrong with that. Flavours are a musky light strawberry with rose water, pretty much dry, with a little chalkiness to the texture and a solid finish. Nicely done.

Well, if a rosé is made by such Burgundy royalty as DRC’s Aubert de Villaine and Dujac’s Jacques Seysses; a bloke sort of has to try it, hey? Yet it comes from Provence, well to the south of Burgundy and not a Pinot Noir grape in sight. Instead, this is based on old vines Cinsault, a variety not known for its power and complexities, but which remains valued in the south, for example by some for Cotes du Rhone producers, to add fragrance and zip to their reds. In this, the variety’s characteristic rosés, seem to appear not only in the aromatics, but also in a radiant rose pink colour. This is so textured, long and fresh and it plays out with a tingling backbone and a nice drying, savoury note at the end. This is worth finding. Don’t know if I’ve seen a better rosé...
