0.75l2021 TriennesMéditérranée IGP0.75l Rosé€10.00 €8.26The success of the Rosé de Triennes, produced by the estate’s negociant company, has grown more by word of mouth by wine lovers than through glossy marketing campaigns on the beaches of the Côte d’Azur. After all, it has an enviable pedigree that over Provencal rosés would dream of!

We can imagine serving this wine on so many occasions when the sun begins to shine – to accompany a game of boules as an aperitif, to match at table with fresh seafood (think grilled shrimps) or spicy, Asian dishes or those occasions when you want everyone to drink the same wine together in an atmosphere of friendship and fun. Drink now through a sun filled summer.

The soils are rich clay at the bases and limestone on the summits of the hills...Read more
