Double-Mag Rosé Madness: Summer Necessity?

Posted by Ian McFadden

2012 Triennes Rosé Double-Magnum
One Parcel: Special Pricing Ends Monday!
(Unfortunately, the Heat Won't End Monday!)

What do Jacques Seysses, Aubert de Villaine and a rare parcel of whopping-big rosé have in common?

They have Domaine Triennes in common.

In 1989 Seysses and Villaine went looking for a new wine project and ended up finding a small estate they thought had tremendous potential in Provence. They bought it and renamed it Domaine Triennes.

Since then they have poured tremendous resources into the estate, into the vineyards and the results have been truly superb. For the last three or four years, their rosé has in fact been one of our absolute favorites.

I've already drunk a case and a handful of magnums of Triennes 2012 Rosé this summer. I'm not alone in my enthusiasm. At this year's War of the Rosés, people came up to me saying how good they thought the 2012 vintage of Triennes is and what a great value it is.

Which is why, almost on a whim, we asked if it would be possible to have a small parcel of the wine bottled in double-magnum!

For the next six weeks, you could make an argument that a Jeroboam (3 liters - four bottles in one) is something of a necessity. August is right around the corner, with all the ugly heat/humidity that it implies.

Why have 750 milliliters when you could have 3,000?

The hallmark of the Triennes rosé is freshness and restraint. After all, the goal here is to be refreshing. A delicate whisper of red fruit woven finely with citrus and stone fruit and a snappy acidity that keeps you licking your lips and coming back for more.

Which is critical in the dregs of August. We have the only parcel and there's not much to go around!
