About our winery:

Chêne Bleu is our all-consuming passion: multi award-winning, critically-acclaimed wines from high up in the Dentelles de Montmirail, above Gigondas and Séguret in the Southern Rhône, which have already been described as “rising stars” poised to “achieve ‘cult’ wine status”.
The wines come from our family-operated boutique winery, working with small batches of hand-picked grapes from our estate to produce small numbers of cutting-edge vintages. Our decision to go outside the appellation allows us to make the best wines in accordance with the specificities of our terroir, which have been referred to in the press as the world's first "Super Rhônes".


Three things to love about us:

Chene Bleu wines begin with the exceptional advantage of isolation. We are able to capture and express the individual character of the "terroir" - the soil, the microclimate, the vegetation, the altitude - that make our wines unique.
Experts agree that it is an exceptional site for growing grapes due to its complex clay and limestone soils, its varied exposures and slopes, a and altitude, and its isolation from air pollution and run-off chemicals from neighbouring farms.
Manual harvesting and our gravity-fed cellar allows us to make wines of exceptional quality without having to pump, limiting oxygen contact.


What makes us unique:

The vineyards are situated at the crossroads of four Rhône appellations near Gigondas. For the wines of Chêne Bleu, this is not a defining aspect, given the natural and atypical characteristics of our terroir. Therefore, we have chosen to implement French and International practices that we believe are best suited, even when it means presenting the wines as Vin de Pays.
