About this Wine:
Just a short distance from Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, on the north side of the Alpilles, is the Domaine de Trévallon, situated in the village of Saint-Etienne-du-Grès.

Viticulture
Organically farmed. The Durbach family plows to encourage the roots of the vines to plunge deeper into the soil for water and nutrients, and they believe in pruning short, which not only reduces the yields but extends the life of the plant by 20 to 50 years.

Vinification
Whole cluster, wild yeast fermentation. The wine undergoes regular punch-downs and pump-overs of the cap before extended aging.

Aging
Aged for 24 months in foudres.

Grapes
50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Syrah

Tasting Notes
To the eye the color is ruby with purple tints. The nose is powerful with notes of red fruits, pepper, copper and spices. The mouth is full and smooth. The freshness is evident and gives lovely zest to this wine.

Food pairings
Duck with cranberries, leg of lamb from les Alpilles with herbs from Provence.

Ratings & Reviews:

95 Points - Vinous Media (2017 Vintage):
"The 2017 Alpilles Rouge is flat-out delicious. Ripe, plummy and forward, the 2017 offers tremendous immediacy. If I didn’t know how well Trévallon ages, I would be tempted to set an earlier drinking window, but the best is clearly yet to come. Next to other vintages that display a good bit of ripeness, the 2017 remains medium in body and silky. Sweet red berry fruit, flowers, cedar and earthy notes lead into the vibrant, translucent finish. I hope I can capture just how captivating the 2017 is." - Antonio Galloni (October 2020)
