Rouge-Bleu 2011 Header

The latest Vintage from our First Rhone Domaine. 

Recently awarded 18.4 Points.

 

Domaine Rouge-Bleu was founded in 2006. Part of a 400 year old Provencal farm, the property included 8 hectares of old vines - Carignan, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre.

 

Rouge-Bleu Mistral 2011 Review A couple of years ago the domaine was purchased by Caroline Jones and her partner Thomas Bertrand. Caroline is from Western Australia and Thomas is from the Vosges mountains in France. They have continued the tradition begun by Jean-Marc Espinnase including organic practices in the vineyards.


Caroline and Thomas were delighted to receive an exceptional review from the Houston Chronicle for the 2011 Mistral. The review is reproduced alongside (click the image to enlarge).

Mistral 2011

Normally $36.95

Case of 12 Bottles $221.70 (=$18.48 a bottle)

  

Rouge-Bleu Mistral Made from 75% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 3% Mouvedre and 2% Rousanne it is an interesting and powerful blend. With the exception of the Syrah, the vines are 75 years old. 50% of the wine is aged in barrels of 3-5 years to add structure.  

 

Direct, featuring a good core of plum and blackberry fruit, studded with toasted spice and bramble hints. A flicker of mesquite appears on the finish. Wine Spectator: Ruby purple colour, on the nose black fruits spices liquorice and mint. Good concentration on the palate, chewy tannins and a finish following through from the nose.

  

Lunatique 2011

Normally $79.50

Case of 12 Bottles $477.00 (=$39.75 a bottle)

  

Rouge-Bleu Lunatique 100% 80-100 Year old Grenache. No destemming, fermented in traditional concrete tanks. Aged in French oak for 16 months. Only 1200 bottles produced. A favourite amongst lovers of pure Grenache.

 

A burly style, with dark licorice, roasted plum, smoldering tobacco and charcoal notes, all backed by plum skin and tar on the finish. Features a slightly sinewy structure, but shows enough flesh for balance and should settle in with modest cellaring" Wine Spectator: Deep garnet, intense nose evoking notes of forest floor, spices and cooked red fruit. Mouth fillling with a good structure, freshness and minerality. Lots of character.

Crouzau Label

 

Another Cotes-du-Rhone worth a look

 

Actually quite a superior bottling - this is a Cotes-du-Rhone Villages from St Gervais.

 

Jeb Dunnuck, The Rhone Report

Easily the most dense and structured, the 2009 Foncalieu Côtes du Rhône Villages St. Gervais La Réserve du Crouzau, coming from west of the Rhône river and a slightly cooler terroir, starts out reserved and tight, yet opens in the glass with deep black fruits, leafy herbs, damp earth, roasted meats, and solid minerality all developing. Medium-bodied and well built on the palate, with a firm, edgy texture, good mid-palate concentration, and a fair dose of savory tannin, this excellent Rhône blend will reward 1-2 years of bottle age, and have upwards of 4-6 years of longevity.
