Description
  • Chénas, a Cru du Beaujolais, is produced from grapes grown on the ideally situated southerly facing pink granite slopes which gain maximum exposure to the sun's warming rays. As a result the Gamay fruit produced reaches maximum ripeness. Once harvested, by hand, the fruit is fermented in whole bunches of grapes in open vats. The Chénas reveals delicious aromas of raspberries and cherries balanced by a lovely acidity, accompanied by a fine velvety finish. (Chénas comes from 'chênaie', a forest that is dominated by oak trees).
