Two of Burgundy's greatest names – Jacques Seysses, founder of Domaine Dujac, and Aubert de
Villaine, co-owner of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti – own this stunning, 113 acre property in
Provence, which is recognized as one of the top wine estates in Southern France. Unlike most of the
vineyards in the area which are planted on valley floors, Triennes sits on a south-facing slope at about
1,400-1,450 feet above sea level. The soils are rich in limestone and low in organic matter. The
relatively cool microclimate helps maintain freshness, vibrancy and balance in the wines. The estate
is named after the triennia – festivities in the honor of Bacchus that took place every three years in
|The wine offers a ripe bouquet and flavors of plums andblack cherries intermixed
with cracked pepper and cloves. Dense, rich and velvet-textured, this wine has wonderful balance for
enjoyment with a variety of cuisines. A true vin de plaisir!
|St. Auguste is a blend of the estate's best casks of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot fermented
slowly on natural yeasts, aged 12 months in older casks from Domaine Dujac and bottled unfiltered
after a light fining.
