2016 Domaine de Trévallon Rouge, Vin de Pays des Bouches du Rhône
The 2016 follows the iconic blend of this maverick estate: roughly equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Organic farming, low yields, and long élevage married with the superb 2016 growing season in the south culminate in a Vin de Pays outside the mould. Owner Erloi Dürrbach’s refusal to play by appellation rules, the wine’s unquestionable quality, and that intangibly unique appeal of the one-off labels, first designed by his father - a great friend of Pablo Picasso - go some way in explaining this domaine’s category-defying draw.
