Chêne Bleu 2013 Abélard Red (Ventoux)

Editors' Choice

An finessed expression of a cool, wet vintage, this rare library release showcases the longevity of well-made wines from Ventoux. Organic and biodynamically produced, it's a full-bodied but spry 85/15 blend of Grenache and Syrah. Crisp red-plum and cherry flavors are vibrant but marked by veins of autumn leaf, allspice and freshly tilled earth. Silky on the finish, it's fantastic now but should hold through 2025 at least.
