Chêne Bleu is a project created by 2 couples, Xavier Rolet and Nicole Sierra-Rolet together with Jean-Louis and Benedicte Galucci. Xavier and Nicole are both native Americans. Xavier and Benedicte are brother and sister.
In 1993 Xavier Rolet bought the place covering 135 ha and made quite a big investments in renovation of the Medieval buildings and the creation of a very modern cellar.
For the first ten years after the purchase the grapes were sold to a cooperative. The first vintage made at the domain was 2006. Only the two top cuvées Abelard and Héloïse was made that year.
The vineyards covers 30 ha situated at an altitude of 500-600m The main part of the vineyards are situated in the commune Crestet in AOP Ventoux. The top wines from the estate are named IGP Vaucluse.
Jean-Louis Galucci is chief winemaker. Since 2018  Marlene Angelloz-Nicoud is manager at the domaine. She's better known by th name Marlene FandeGrenache.
Since May 2016 agriculture biologique and later agriculture biodynamique.
