2015 was a truly exceptional vintage for Beaujolais and if there’s such a thing as Blockbuster Beaujolais, this is it; deep and beetroot-stained, the palate is ripe and plush with gorgeous velvety texture.

Chénas is named after chênaies, the dense oak forests which were all over the Beaujolais region before Philippe V ordered them all to be cut down to make room for grapevines. Today, the vineyards of AOC Chénas cover just 237ha, the lowest production cru in Beaujolais. Soils are mainly granite with some areas of schist and fertile alluvial clay. Granite and Gamay go hand as granite contains lots of quartz; quartz soils are generally poor (great for vines), drain really well and importantly, when rain meets quartz, you get silicic acid. Acid is good for Gamay. It stimulates deep root growth and – counter-intuitively – keeps grape acidity in check.

This Beaujolais' fresh, herbaceous core is wonderful matched with strongly flavoured savoury dishes such as dried meats, liver and hard cheeses.
