Allée Bleue L’Amour Toujours
The birth of Allée Bleue and its many wines like the Allée Bleue L’Amour Toujours has a humble beginning. The French Huguenots arrived in the Cape in the late 1600s and settled in what became known as Franschhoek, or ‘French Corner’.
The Huguenots planted vines as the terroir was perfectly suited to the production of wine. Allée Bleue was bought in 1999 by Friedrich-Wilhelm and Elke Dauphin, who were determined to breathe new life into the estate.
Allée Bleue L’Armour Toujours is made in Franschhoek, in the heart of the Western Cape’s wine growing region. It is a blend of 40% Cabernet Franc, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot.
Grapes were sourced from selected mountain vineyards in the Banghoek area that is known for its individuality. It is a unique wine that will intrigue an experienced connoisseur. In addition, the wine will age beautifully over the next 5-7 years.
On the nose
It has delicate flavours such as fynbos, cedar and cigar box, which adds a level of smokiness that your nose may easily detectable on the nose. These flavours are all beautifully wrapped up in blackberry fruit.
On the palate
The wine is reminiscent of a spicy, dark chocolate with hints of cinnamon with elegant and soft tannins.
