Tasting Notes:

The 2015 Chenas Quartz has excellent concentration and character with plenty of forward dark red fruit. It's perfectly balanced and will age well over the next 5-7 years, but it’s delicious to drink right now. This is a great example of why the best cru Beaujolais can stand side by side most Burgundies.

Piron's Chenas may be the benchmark bottling for the smallest appellation in Beaujolais. Bearing the title "Quartz" in deference to the high mineral content of its soils, Chenas combines both the power of Morgon with the aromatics of Julienas, and is considered one of the Beaujolais crus most suited to long-term aging.

Dominique Piron can trace his winemaking ancestry back as far as 14 generations. He knows how to coax the best out of his 50-year-old Gamay Noir vines. They grow on the hillsides of superior Villages. The result is this fruit-filled 2015 - exactly what proper Beaujolais is all about.

Manual harvesting, sorting table, light destemming. The vinification is traditional and of average duration of 10 to 12 days.

Duration of barrel ageing: 16 months

Food pairing

Accompanies wonderfully simple and local cuisine, especially meat dishes, pot-aufeu, stews.
