Tasting notes for the Saint-Auguste 2016 - Domaine des Triennes

  • EYE: Beautiful deep ruby color with violet reflections. The wine's clarity is remarkable, demonstrating excellent filtration quality. The tears that flow down the glass are thick, indicating a certain concentration.
  • NOSE: The bouquet is intense and complex. At first, ripe black fruit aromas such as black cherry and blackberry emerge, accompanied by notes of blackcurrant. Spicy nuances of black pepper and licorice complete the aromatic profile. Delicate hints of vanilla and oak from barrel aging can also be detected.
  • MOUTH: This wine reveals itself as powerful and full-bodied, with well-present but perfectly integrated tannins. The structure is elegant and balanced. The flavors of black fruits confirm themselves, accompanied by notes of plum and blackcurrant. The spicy notes from the nose are also present, along with a subtle touch of dark chocolate. The finish is long and persistent, leaving a pleasant sensation in the mouth.


In short: The Saint-Auguste 2016 from Domaine des Triennes is a remarkable wine that showcases the expertise of this estate. Its aromatic intensity and complexity make it an ideal choice for enthusiasts of powerful and structured red wines. It can be experienced right now, but it can also be cellared for several years, even a decade, to allow the aromas to further develop and the tannins to soften even more. This wine pairs perfectly with red meat dishes such as grilled steaks, lamb chops, or roasts. It also complements game dishes, such as wild boar stew or duck breast. For cheese lovers, it harmonizes well with aged hard cheeses.

Other appellations from this estate: Triennes Rosé, Triennes Saint-Auguste, Triennes Viognier Sainte-Fleur (Bio), Triennes Merlot (Bio), Triennes Les Auréliens Blanc (Bio), Triennes Les Auréliens Rouge (Bio)...

Great local wines from Var


The Domaine de Triennes is the brainchild of two men, acclaimed by the entire wine industry: Jacques Seysses, founder of the Domaine Dujac, and Aubert de Villaine, owner of the Domaine de Villaine and former associate director of the world famous Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. Both of them were also joined by a third one, Michel Macaux. Together, they created Triennes in 1989, in the commune of Nans-les-Pins (French Provence region).

The name of the estate comes from the Latin word "Triennia", used to describe the Roman bacchanalias. Huge festivals in honor of the god of wine Bacchus, that took place every three years in the city of Thebes. The Domaine des Triennes produces local Var wines that are 100% organic (Ecocert certified), in red, white and rosé versions. The 46 hectares of vineyard, planted in a very dry limestone and clay soil, is a collection of Chardonnay, Viognier, MerlotCabernet-Sauvignon and Syrah grape varieties.
