Le domaine du Chêne Bleu is our big crush of the year at la CUV !

 

Astralable is a full-bodied vintage, with flavours of ripe red fruits, a hint of spices and herbs, and a silky cocoa finish. Perfect on a leg of lamb, with beef, and why not on a chocolate desert !

 

Majority of Grenache with a hint of Syrah.

 

Maybe the name of this vintage reminds you of a distant history class....On the 11th century, Abélard and Héloïse lived a story of forbidden and impossible love, which yet resulted in the birth of a son named Astralabe. Separated by force after the discovery of their relation, they exchanged many love letters which are still famous and studied nowadays. 


Chêne Bleu takes a tongue-in-cheek look back on history with their anachronistic label, where you can see Abélard listening to his musique with earphones, and on each side, his parents sending each other emails !
