History

Chénas is the smallest appellation of the Beaujolais in surface. Its name is linked to the ancient oak plantations of the commune, cleared by the Gallo-Romans and then by the monastic orders of Philip V the Long.

Vines have existed on the site known as “les Darroux” for a very long time. The Ursuline nuns of Macon had a small estate there which was sold during the Revolution as a national asset.

The vines, about sixty years old, are managed in reasoned fight.

Tasting

Brilliant garnet color. Intense aromas of ripe black fruits, plums in brandy where kirschy scents and spicy perfumes intermingle. The racy and patinated tannins allow to appreciate this Chénas in its youth or to wait a little before tasting it. A wine of character which will be perfect with a rib of beef or game.
