Tasting Notes

Much sought after, Chénas, the rarest of the Beaujolais Crus, is a generous cellaring wine with a wonderfully soft mouthfeel.  

The robe is ruby with garnet tints; the aromas are floral with peony at the fore. This cuvée was matured in barrels for 8 months and sets itself apart with its finesse and complexity.

Domaine Matray

     
From a winemaking family spanning 5 generations, Lilian Matray, his wife Sandrine and his daughter Célia work the family estate.
    
The estate buildings are in Juliénas, a charming little Beaujolais village, while the estate’s vines grow on 11 hectares of slopes that are not only in the Juliénas appellation area. The variety of the soils give the very typical, fruity Beaujolais aromas and flavours of each specific appellation.
