RATINGS: 90pts Vinous

Chęne Bleu is named for an aged oak tree preserved on this isolated estate high on the slopes of the Dentelles de Montmirail. Here in the foothills of Mont Ventoux, where the boundaries of Gigondas, Cotes du Ventoux, Cotes du Rhone and Sguret come together, the Rolet family discovered an abandoned property with a unique terroir. Dating back to the early Middle Ages, the estate had once been a priory of the Knights Templar. Restoration of the ancient monastery spanned more than a decade. The vineyards had long been neglected but were growing on complex mineral and limestone soils. Reclamation of the vineyards led to excavation for a gravity flow winery, which led to exceptional, estate grown Rhone varietal wines. Organic and biodynamic practices are followed to maintain this pristine environment.

Tasting Notes: Vinous 90 points Limpid orange. Mineral accented red currant, raspberry and blood orange aromas show excellent clarity and pick up a suave candied lavender nuance as the wine opens up. Concentrated yet lithe on the palate, offering intense red berry and bitter orange pith flavors that pick up a spicy quality on the back half. Shows excellent focus and mineral cut on the persistent finish, which leaves a palate numbing suggestion of white pepper behind..June/2017
