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 domain Trévallon

The Enmore sugar plantation was set up in the early 19th century by Edward Henry Porter on the banks of the River Demerara. When the Guyanese government nationalized the production of rum in 1974, it was one of the last distilleries still in operation, alongside Diamond and Uitvlugt. The two wooden Coffey stills built from Chlorocardium Rodiei (Greenheart)—a wood generally used for shipbuilding due to its good water resistance, which offers properties similar to copper for purifying sulphur compounds—date back to the 1880s and are based on the model invented by Aeneas Coffey in 1832. They were transferred to Uitvlugt when the distillery closed in 1994, then to Diamond when Uitvlugt closed in 1999. This was also the case for the Enmore wooden pot still that Enmore had recovered after the distillery of the same name closed in 1978.
