Chenas is the smallest of all of the Beaujolais Cru's. Benjamin's Chénas En Pérelle comes from a tiny 0.4ha vineyard with clay and blue granite soil and a south exposition. It's supple, polished and has delicious crunchy fruit. This a wine full of vibrant acidity and several layers of red fruit, it's got a silky structure with easy going tannins.
