Cuvée presentation

This cuvée is an equal-part blend of Syrah and Cabernet-Sauvignon, and an absolute must-have bottle from Provence. A lesson in straightness and complex, harmonious aromas which marry ripe red fruits, iodine flavours and hints of the garrigue. It is perfectly balanced in the mouth with a crazily complex, persistent finish. Suitable for cellaring, it is best to decanter before serving, alongside boldly flavoured food.

Information about domainTrévallon

On the northern slope of the Alpilles mountains between Avignon and Arles; and located near St Rémy de Provence, the Trévallon domain was acquired in 1955 by René Dürrbach, father of the current owner. He was a painter and sculptor; and friend of Picasso, Léger and Gleizes; but sought to leave the hustle and bustle of the French Riviera to retire in a more peaceful part of France. In 1973, at the age of 23, his son Eloi Dürrbach, then an architecture student in Paris, decided to settle in a traditional mas farmhouse that is now part of the Trévallon domaine. He created the vineyard by blasting part of the hills that surround the estate. The first vines were planted during the winter of 1973, on the unusual site made up of scrubland and limestone rocks. The vineyard is made up of small parcels located within a two-kilometre radius of the cellar. The vines are grown in the most natural and traditional way possible, free from insecticides, fertilisers, and chemical herbicides. For the production of red wines, Eloï Durbach has opted for an equal distribution of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. This decision has resulted in the INAO (the official body that oversees designations), to refuse his wines AOC Baux de Provence status, when the appellation was created in 1993. They argued that the Cabernet Sauvignon dominated the blend. However, there is no doubt that this is what gives the wine its distinctive character: on the Alpilles terroir, it brings spicy notes, with aromas of cinnamon and pepper. The Syrah brings mellowness and a silky, seductive character to the wine. Once classified as Coteaux d'Aix, Trévallon wines have been labelled Vin de Pays des Bouches du Rhône since 1996.
