Triennes - Saint Auguste 2019


Two of Burgundy’s greatest names – Jacques Seysses, founder of Domaine Dujac, and Aubert de Villaine, co-owner of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti – are the partners behind this pioneering property in Provence, northeast of Marseille and due east of Aix-en-Provence. Over the years, they have transformed this stunning 46-hectare site into one of the top wine estates in Southern France.

Tank time varies from 12 to 25 days for most lots and up to 30 to 35 days for certain exceptionnal lots. Daily pump-over on the Cabernet-Sauvignon, puch-downs on the Syrah. Wine is aged for 12 months in French barrels previously seasoned at domaine Dujac. Lightly finned, bottled unfiltered.

Saint Auguste is a selection of the best cuvées of Syrah, Cabernet-Sauvignon and Merlot. The robe is rich dark purple with bright ruby highlights. It offers alluring aromas of ripe black cherries, nutmeg and clove. It is full and concentrated and is a wine that can be enjoyed upon release and over the following ten to fifteen years.
