Chêne Bleu - Abélard



95 Points - The Wine Advocate

“Abélard is a masculine, muscular, Southern Rhône-style Grenache-Sryah blend; a brooding testament to the scholar’s cerebral intensity and resilience.” - Nicole Rolet

“When tasting the 2010 Abelard alongside the Heloise, the derivation of the names becomes obvious. Abelard is the bigger, richer wine—the more "masculine," to deploy a somewhat dated/sexist stereotype. This full-bodied Grenache-dominated (85%) wine is packed with black cherries, star anise and other ground spices, and features a wonderfully long silky finish. Despite the size and concentration, the wine is complex and elegant, not an easy feat.” - Joe Czerwinski

Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

In 1993 Nicole and Xavier Rolet began the task of restoring a medieval priory and vineyard that had been slumbering quietly for centuries in the foothills of Mount Ventoux in the southern Rhône. The estate was named La Verrière in 1427, after the glass-blowing workshop established there by Aliot Montvin.
