RATINGS: 90pts Vinous

Ch???ne 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, C??tes du Ventoux, C??tes du Rh??ne and S??guret 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 Rh??ne 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
