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.
Benjamin's Chénas En Pérelle is powerful, polished and has delicious crunchy fruit with floral aromatics. This a wine full of vibrant acidity and several layers of red fruit, it's got a silky structure with easy going tannins.
