2012 Château Trians "T de Trians" Coteaux Varois en Provence Rouge

SKU #1238498

A near equal parts blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Grenache, this great value is the top bottling from one of our newest Direct Import producers in the region. Coteaux Varois en Provence is in the west center of the Provence appellation, and is ringed by hills and mountains to the south, north and west. The soils are mostly limestone and clay with the two main distinctions being altitude (most vineyards average 350 meters) and a continental climate influence. The surrounding mountains and hills act as natural barriers. Château Trians has the added benefit of having all north-facing vineyards. In 1989, Jean-Louis Masurel took over the 50-acre vineyard and began modernizing and shifted to organic production. Arriving just a month ago, his rosé quickly sold out, but his white and reds are tremendous offerings and exceptional values. This full-bodied wine offers flavors of roasted black plum, blueberry, and smoky mineral with savory, polished tannins.

Trians' most serious red, here the addition of Cabernet lends more backbone and structure to an already mouthfilling wine. The way that Cabernet, Syrah and Grenache play together in the region is a revelation. Having lovely currant and blackberry fruit with layers of garrigue and fresh picked herbs make this an enticing wine now. Still youthful, I recommend an hour decanting or better yet save it for a year or two down the road. Perfect choice for a Cal-Med cuisine of grilled meats and vegetables lightly charred with a slather of olive oil over everything.
