Put bluntly, any exploration into France's greatest wines is incomplete without the inclusion of Domaine de Trévallon, yet the legend and reputation of this estate's flagship red is still not reflected in its final price. The only plausible explanation is its place of origin: If this were a Classified Growth château'”and yes, it most definitely belongs in elite Bordelais company'”it would cost many multiples more. The estate lies in the Les Baux de Provence region which is just south of the town of Avignon. The estate was originally planted to equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, and it's this unique blend that helps make this cuvee so singular. While Trévallon has done more to elevate the status of this region than any other producer, the French are their own worst enemy and in 1993 enacted an AOC law limiting the amount of Cabernet Sauvignon in the vineyards to no more than 20%. As opposed to replanting all of their vineyards, the family (wisely) opted to use the lesser known Vin de Pays du Bouche du Rhône classification. In 2009, the Alpilles IGP was created and the estate has used this classification since. These are dense, muscular styles with savory pepper and garrigue.
