"The Chénas appellation is, like its closest neighbor Moulin-à-Vent, one of the most full-bodied and highly-regarded of the 10 “Crus” of the Beaujolais wine region. With only 635 acres located on the single slopes of Mont Rémont, it is the smallest of the Cru. Chénas owe its name to the oak tree - “Chêne” in French- forest that use to cover this hillside before being replaced by vines in the 15th century.
A full, rich and rounded wine that brings out the concentration from the low yielding old vines. It has rich black cherry and spice flavors that go with the delicious acidity and solid structure. This could be a wine to age, but it’s so good now. Pair with red meat, game cooked with a mushroom sauce, pâté and charcuterie, or goat cheese.”
