History

Chénas, the village that has given its name to the wine (unless it s the other way round!), is the smallest of the ten Crus in terms of volume. This is probably why it is so unjustly unknown, however it is really excellent value for money. Its name is thought to have originated from the Gallic word cassanus , which means a place planted with oak, or from a Roman patrician called Canus. Whatever the case, it is known that the land in the commune was for a long time covered by an oak forest, and we know that, from distant
Antiquity, the Druids placed great importance on this sacred tree. And wasn t it the Gauls who invented the barrel, an ingenious container in which could not only be vinified and matured, but also transported? Some people say that Chénas was Louis XIII s favourite wine. To merit royal favour is no mean compliment. It is, indeed, a hearty, elegant wine, worthy of the finest tables.

Tasting

This wine is cherry red with lovely purple tints, and releases expressive, complex red berry and blackcurrant aromas, with a hint of almonds. This clean-tasting wine fills the mouth with fleshiness and grape aromas, then reveals young, promising tannins. Persistent and pleasant, an excellent ambassador for the appellation.
