The Southern Rhône’s hottest new producer, Chêne Bleu are creating “Super Rhônes” outside the appellation system, in a high-elevation site in the middle of the UNESCO Biosphere that just happens to be blessed with 60-year-old Grenache and Syrah vines. Developed with respect for the property’s long history (stretching back as far as 1427, when it was a medieval glass-blowing workshop) but looking forward to the future of fine wine, the winemaking is done exclusively by hand, with tiny yields up to a third below those of neighbouring Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The winery was purpose-built Organic and Biodynamic from the outset, and the wines have received consistent rave reviews since 2006, the first vintage.
This collection is an introduction to what owner Nicole Rolet calls the “haute couture” equivalent range: three wines designed to express the absolute best of what the unique Chêne Bleu terroir has to offer, for serious collectors. Those seeking the more accessible range should also check out the Drink Now Collection, the “pret-a-porter” equivalent range designed to be enjoyed immediately, yet with complexity and elegance far exceeding similar-priced alternatives from the region.
