      Chêne Bleu
      Rosé, IGP Vaucluse – 2017

      The Wine Advocate
      92 Points

      There's more to the 2017 IGP Vaucluse Le Rose than attractive forward fruit, so it should drink well through the end of next year. Subtle strawberry, peach and melon notes are delivered on a medium-bodied, silky-textured palate and a long finish...

      Mature, with gently mulled cherry, currant and plum fruit flavors infused with mocha, anise and juniper notes. The structure is fine-grained and well-integrated. Shy on vibrancy but still solid. Syrah, Grenache and Viognier. Drink now through 2020.

      Abélard, Vin de Pays du Vaucluse – 2010

      Ripe and enticing, offering layers of fig, dark currant and blackberry fruit that are well-steeped but still detailed, woven with notes of anise, warm tobacco and roasted alder. Delivers a broad feel on the finish, with the wood playing a prominent role. Very solid. Grenache and Syrah. Drink now through 2022.

      “I hope you aren’t rosé-ed out, because you don’t want to miss this dry sophisticated rosé from an enchanting high-altitude property in southern France, the site of a priory in the Middle Ages. Unlike so many (innocuous) modern rosés, Chêne Bleu (the name means Blue Oak) is an old-style, artisanal French rosé—full-bodied, full-flavored, and full of personality. Even the blend that makes it up is interesting—grenache, syrah, rolle, cinsault, and mourvèdre. I first had Chêne Bleu on a 105-degree day in the Napa Valley, and it was pure heaven. This is the kind of rosé that’s great all-year-round. (14% abv)”
