WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY ABOUT CHÊNE BLEU


"A lot of freshness and a true vibrant character."
"No winery is more focused on quality."
-Jancis Robinson

"I like them a lot and admire their style and the intelligent, haute-couture approach that has gone into making them."
-Steven Spurrier

"The most important new project I have seen coming out of Europe."
“The birth of a Grand Cru.”
-Michel Bettane

"A determination to transform abandoned terroir has resulted in international respect… Already regarded as one of the most significant producers in the Rhône Valley."
-Richard Siddle for the Buyer

"...stunning grace and freshness... It’s a long-term project run by serious people…. it could be the world’s first Super Rhône."
-Will Lyons for Wall Street Journal


EXPERTS OPINIONS ABOUT THE 2007 VINTAGE


When you participate in the project, you will receive the 2007 vintage from the owner’s private collection.

Robert Parker designated 2007 as "vintage of a lifetime" for the Southern Rhône

Abélard 2007, 93 points

“This has dark, brooding aromas of crushed plum and black tea, followed by rich yet racy graphite, espresso, singed iron and mulled blackberry fruit. The long, sleek finish lets the iron note hang on. Dense, but pure at the core, with solid grip.”
–James Molesworth for Wine Spectator

Abélard 2007, 95 points

“More dense and structured, yet still vibrant and very pure, the 2007 Abelard is 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah. Loaded with deep blackberry and black cherry fruit, licorice, crushed stone and hints of roasted herbs, it is full-bodied, rich and concentrated, with knockout precision and focus. It is serious stuff and still a baby. Drink it over the coming decade.”
-Jeb Dunnuck for Wine Advocate

Héloïse 2007, 94 points

“Moving to the reds and a perfumed, lightly textured and elegant effort, the 2007 Heloise is 60% Syrah, 37% Grenache and the balance Viognier, that’s vinified separately before blending prior to bottling. Fresh and complex, with vibrant black and blue fruits, violets and spice, this medium to full-bodied 2007 builds in the glass and is seamlessly textured and never puts a foot wrong.”
-Jeb Dunnuck for Wine Advocate

Abélard 2007, Gold Medal
Concours Mondial de Bruxelles

“If grenache were to become the next "it" grape, Chêne Bleu's grenache-driven "Abélard" could one day maybe achieve "cult" wine status.”

“The worlds is full of prime wine-growing regions, which can rival the tried-and-true classics. Don’t be afraid to be a pioneer.”

“It was a Provençal Aliot 2007 from Chêne Bleu that won universal praise – its extra oak helping to keep its structure in place as it refused to cow to conditions.”
