This is Benjamin's top wine which comes from the oldest vines (70-100 year old) which produce very low yields. The 'Au Bois Retour' has seriously deep berry fruit along with smokey mineral undertones and a weightless mouthfeel. 

Chenas is the smallest of all of the Beaujolais Cru's with poor rocky sandy soils, perfect for Gamay vines to dig their roots deep into the ground. This results in complex and concentrated wines that can age, like the wines of Chénas's more famous neighbour, Moulin-à-Vent.
