Join us Thursday, September 17th, at 6:30pm for a Zoom tasting of the wines of Domaine Triennes with Jeremy Seysses. Domaine Triennes is a joint venture between Aubert de Villaine, the part-owner and director of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, and Jacques Seysses, the owner of Domaine Dujac. With his father's retirement, Jeremy is now the director of Domaine Triennes and of Domaine Dujac, which is one of the most highly-acclaimed wineries in Burgundy. For the whites and the rosé of Domaine Triennes, the foremost consideration is the finesse of fruit and freshness of the wines. The cool microclimate which Triennes naturally enjoys favors the acidity in the wines. For the reds, the desire is to produce structured wines that combine ripe fruit with complexity, elegance, and finesse. These are very, very special but affordable wines produced by two of the most revered winemaking families in the world.
