Domaine de Trévallon Alpilles Cabernet Syrah 2013

$53.99

Wines arriving 10/10/17. The story of the Domaine de Trandeacute;vallon reads like something of a wine fantasy. Elioi Durrbach was an architecture student in Paris when he decided that his calling was back at the family property in Alpilles, between Arles and Avignon in Provence. Though there were no vines planted at the time, Eloi had a vision that he could create something special from the pine and scrub covered hillsides below the mountains above. Eloiand#39;s father, an important artist and great friend of Picasso, who was Eloiand#39;s godfather, also had the belief that his property would be an ideal place to make wine. He was not however, on board with Eloiand#39;s departing from school, and made it well known. Eloi charged ahead all the same, digging and blasting plots around his property. He began in the early 70and#39;s by planting some Syrah cuttings from Rayas and some Cabernet Sauvignon from Chateau Vignelaure near neighboring Aix-en-Provence. The property is now comprised of fifteen hectares split evenly between Syrah and Cabernet and two additional hectares planted to Marsanne, Rousanne, Clairette and Grenache Blanc and a small bit of Chardonnay. Eloiand#39;s philosophy is all about a dogged commitment to a simple, pure expression of place. Much like their origin, the wines are profound examples of a timeless and raw beauty that hits hard, and deeply. Lovers of these wines are fiercely loyal to them, and for good reason. Although Trandeacute;vallon may be more of a recognizable name in the present day, that is not to say that the wines are any less exciting than they have ever been. These are special wines that deserve a significant place in any expansive collection and a wonderful and engaging companion at the dinner table.

We loved this wine. Opened it and the St Patrice Chat du Pape as an experiment. Had FFT porterhouse one night and homemade pizzas the second. Best description - St Patrice is your wife, comfortable and loving and smooth, and Trevallon is your mistress, sexy and edgy and delicious.
