Chêne Bleu is a biodynamically farmed estate where grapes have been grown since the Middle Ages. It sits within the UNESCO-designated Mont Ventoux Biosphere Reserve. When Xavier and Nicole Rolet purchased the property in 1993, it had been abandoned for decades. They set out restoring the old buildings, including a priory from the 14th century, and the vines with the intention of producing world-class wines from their isolated location.
The rosé that they turn out is everything you could want. The care that goes into making it is obvious. It's also clear that it originates from a place perfectly suited to rosé production.
Pale orange-pink. Mineral-tinged red berry, honeydew and pit fruit aromas show excellent clarity, and a suave floral note emerges as the wine opens. Palate-staining peach nectar, raspberry and melon flavors are braced by a spine of juicy acidity. The mineral quality resonates on an impressively persistent finish that features a lingering floral quality and a hint of tarragon.
