Chêne Bleu - Aliot Blanc 2016


Blessed with a confluence of natural factors, Chêne Bleu has the benefit of an exceptional location, multifaceted geology, and a southern Rhône climate with soils more typical of the northern Rhône.

Isolated and protected, high in a mountain saddle, Chêne Bleu has its provenance in a unique, four-corner borderland of the département of Vaucluse in the southern Rhône, where the boundaries of Gigondas, Côtes du Ventoux, Côtes du Rhône and Séguret come together.

The wine is beautiful golden yellow, bright and clear. On the nose is rich and complex with notes of verveine, buttery brioche and a touch of honey. On the palate is fresh and elegant with a hint of saline minerality, and fresh lime tree. Full-bodied with great finesse. The finish is intense and long

Serving Suggestions: Ideally paired with foods such as salmon or poultry in cream sauce, paté and characterful French cheeses. Serve lightly chilled (14 C/57 F)
