Chene Bleu Heloïse 2006
$175.00 inc. GST
Peter Abelard was a medieval French scholar, theologian and logician who had a legendary love affair with Heloise, a brilliant scholar of Latin, Greek and Hebrew. Together they represent the coming-together of minds and passion, and are history’s ultimate “power couple”. Grenache-predominant Abelard is the more brooding and masculine, while Syrah-predominant Heloise is the more delicate and feminine.

“Dark, but fresh and focused, with maduro tobacco and graphite notes carrying a beam of black cherry, anise and fig. There’s a flash of violet on the velvety finish.” – Wine Spectator
Tasting Note: 65% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 5% Viognier. Concentrated, rich, ripe, red-fruit aromas with black pepper, smoke, cedar wood and sweet spices. Powerful but balanced and structured, with velvety tannins; ripe Grenache from old vines hits high notes of red fruit, backed up by intense Syrah.
