“Dark berries, cherry liqueur and candied licorice on the powerful, spice- accented nose. Open-knit and fleshy in style, offering spice-laced bitter cherry and cassis flavors and a smoky mineral nuance that expands with air. A subtle floral pastille note comes in on the gentle tannic finish, which lingers with resonating dark berry and floral character and strong, mineral- driven tenacity.”
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.
In his peaceful stone house on top of the “En Rémont” hill at 350 meters high Pascal Aufranc cultivate his tiny 10 hectares estate divided between Juliénas and Chénas. The isolation of his vineyard, surrounded by woods and fields, allows him to favor environment friendly practices in order to let his Terroir speak. His vines planted before WWII broke out, provide us with the deepest expression of this fascinating Terroir.
