Domaine de Trévallon rouge 1983


Trévallon is known for its long aging process, more than 2 years for its reds. Racking is kept to a strict minimum, the lees found at the bottom of the barrels continue to nourish the wine during the ageing process

March 2013 Remains very good and still has ageing potential of 4/5 years.
April 2005 Certainly one of the most beautiful vintages that I have ever made. Very rich and extremely concentrated with notes of fig. Drink or keep
