Chêne Bleu Abélard 2006/07/11/14

85% Grenache, 15% Syrah

Older vines located an altitude of over 500 metres bring excellent natural acidity to the wines. The soil is a very stony mix of clay and limestone.

Deep ruby in colour. Rich nose of black cherries, provencal herbs, licorice and pepper. Full-bodied on the palate with dark cherries and lively spice with silky tannins. A lovely lingering finish of fruit with a touch of tobacco. Very well balanced acidity and it is best enjoyed after 6 years and can drunk up to 15 years from the vintage date.


Shipping costs are calculated per box of 6 bottles. Each box can contain a mixed selection of wines.

Producer profile

The vineyards covers four different wine classifications: AOC Ventoux, IGP, AOC Gigondas and AOC Côtes du Rhône Villages Séguret . The two top reds, Héloise and Abelard are produced from old vines plots which cross the different classification boundaries, so are labelled with the base classification, IGP. The vineyards are contiguously located around the property and surrounded by forest which provides the perfect scenario for organic viticulture. The property also incorporates biodynamic approaches to assist them in their goal of natural viticulture. The winery is built into the slope which means gravity can be used to move the wine through some of its stages and thus reduce the need for pumping. The wines are fermented in a mixture of stainless steel and “foudres” (very large upright oak barrels) for the reds and stainless steel and/or smaller oak barrels for the whites and rosé. The two top reds are aged for up to three years in barriques (225 litre small oak barrels) and concrete.
