2009 Domaine de Trevallon Vin de Pays des Bouches du Rhone Rouge

2009 Domaine de Trevallon Vin de Pays des Bouches du Rhone Rouge

Gorgeous kirsch, herbes de Provence, lavender, tobacco and exotic spice characteristics all flow to a full-bodied, opulent 2009 that has sweet tannin, plenty of mid-palate oomph, and a great finish.'

  • REVIEWS

    'The 2009 Coteaux d'Aix en Provence Alpilles is drinking beautifully today and shows the ripe, sexy, voluptuous style of this vintage in the Southern Rhône Valley. Gorgeous kirsch, herbes de Provence, lavender, tobacco and exotic spice characteristics all flow to a full-bodied, opulent 2009 that has sweet tannin, plenty of mid-palate oomph, and a great finish. It’s drinking at point, yet I suspect will keep for another 7-10 years in cool cellars.'

    'That the greatest wine produced in the Baux-en-Provence region should be designated a vin de pays shows how meaningless French appellation law can be. The reason is that this singular wine, produced from rocky vineyards where nothing should reasonably grow, is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, which is not allowed under appellation rules. Forget the legality. Enjoy and admire the huge flavors of chocolate, spice, dark, brooding black fruits and lean tannins. This wine will age—give it 8 years.'
