A Domain that has become mythical! A beautiful red of gastronomy that can be preserved for twenty years.
"Souple, silky, tender, fresh, graceful, distinguished. How can we not succumb to a wine so finely and brilliantly told?" 17.5 Bettane and Desseauve Guide 2017
"Fresh vintages, like 20, give a red more marked by the expression of cabernet-sauvignon than syrah. All in finesse, with a delicate texture already accessible. To carafer." 17/20 RVF Guide 2017Including sauvignon and syrah at parity, Eloi Durrbach builds a wine with fresh, elegant and vibrant tannins, cut for all truffle dishes. Driven by a strong aromatic complexity, this fleshy, silky and digestible cuvée is above all a wine of balance if any!
The Trevallon estate is located on the commune of Saint-Etienne-du-Grès, in the department of Bouches-du-Rhône, 25 km south of Avignon and 7 km west of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, on the northern slope of the Alpilles. A limestone massif with jagged ridges evoking "Greek rocks" as the Provençal poet Frédéric Mistral wrote. The vine is perfectly integrated into this mesmerizing landscape of scrubland. It rubs shoulders with holm oaks, olive trees and almond trees.
The first thing that grabs the visitor, arriving at the Trevallon estate, is this limestone rock, bright white, with burst shapes, cutting itself alive in a sky with a transparent atmosphere. The contrast is impressive between the vines pulled with the rope and the wild folding of the rock. "The Alpilles are a magical place," admits Eloi Dorrbach. I literally fell in love with it."
The Trevallon vineyard lies in this living and preserved nature on 20 hectares scattered around a mas with sky blue shutters: 15 hectares of reds composed equally of cabernet sauvignon and syrah. And 2 hectares of whites made up of 45%of marsanne, 45%of roussanne and %of chardonnay.
