This beautiful blend of Syrah and Viognier from Faugéres schiste soil is Simon "The Coulsh'" Coulshaw's fabulous take on the iconic Côte-Rôtie wine.  This rare vintage entices with wafts of rose petals and spice, followed by earthy garrigue and dark chocolate dusted forest floor.  All of this layered on baked plums and cherries.  A wine for the long haul to share with the best of friends. 

Wonderful with grilled meats, pork belly hum bao with hoisin sauce, skewered beef with prunes and onions or Osso Buco.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The domaine is situated in the foothills of the Cévennes on the famous schiste slopes of Faugères. At altitudes between 300 and 400 meters, these rocky vineyards create wines that are concentrated yet fresh, perfect for the low intervention, biodynamic and organic practices at the heart of Domaine des Trinités winemaking.
Production Notes
The Viognier and Syrah must ripen in step in order for this wine to be made, which does not happen every year. The Viognier grapes are fermented, then the Syrah must ripen quickly and after fermentation the Syrah rests on the lees of the Viognier. Organic and biodynamic agriculture is practiced. Harvesting and winemaking are timed in accordance with the lunar cycle calendar.
Winemaker Notes
Located on the prized shiste slopes of Faugères, Domaine des Trinités is an artisanal winery specializing in organic and biodynamic wines that express the unique terroir of the region. Simon Coulshaw is a highly regarded natural winemaker. His wines are celebrated by the likes of Jancis Robinson, the famous wine reviewer and scholar. A confirmed “terroirist,” Simon believes that wine quality depends on the quality of the grape which in turn relies on soil, weather, geography, and a host of additional environmental factors unique to the region. Simon’s long-time passion for wine is shared by his father, who was raised in France and schooled in the culture of wine.
Food Pairing Notes
Wonderful with grilled meats, pork belly hum bao with hoisin sauce, skewered beef with prunes and onions or Osso Buco.
