Smart summer Rosé - the 2019 from Chêne Bleu
10 June 2020

Fresh in last week from the hills of Gigondas is the 2019 Rosé from cult Rhône producer Chêne Bleu. Their widely-acclaimed rosé is a high altitude blend centred on Grenache that offers up the sort of refreshing summer drinking you want from a Southern French Rosé at this time of year, whilst also offering sufficient complexity and nuance to gratify the discerning drinker. Serious but easy to enjoy.

Their signature blend is similar to the 2018 – 60% old vines Grenache, 15% Syrah, 8% Mourvèdre, 5% Cinsault, but with Rolle (Vermentino) increased to 12% to add an extra layer of citrus freshness and bite. 2019 was a small but excellent vintage. Rain before harvest saved a drought-affected year and has yielded a wine of great intensity and vitality with a touch of silk to it. Bursting with notes of strawberries, redcurrants, pink grapefruit and cherry blossom. Dry, sophisticated and softly textured with a fine citrussy freshness, this is again a delicious, super smart rosé that drinks beautifully on its own, but is more than capable of accompanying lighter, summery dishes too.
