This is a family run estate in Savigny Les Beaune, in the Cote du Beaune, Burgundy and has been operating as such for five generations. The winery is a member of the Vignerons de Nature, a society whose mandate is to cultivate and produce wines using methods that respect the environment (organic, biodynamic).

Tasting Notes

The Hauts-Jarrons 1er Cru (Jarrons meaning tree branches) is located in the middle of the slope under the Mont Battois hill heading towards Beaune. The deep and sandy soil is similar to that of the Beaune-Bressandes. Likewise, the wines are more like those from Beaune than Savigny. Very full-bodied with medium tannic structure, red berry, floral and earth aromas that develop and expand with age.

Our Thoughts

Louis Chenu Pere et Filles have been producing wines for five generations. They farm their 9.5Ha following biodynamic principles. For a year in which the domaine was decimated by frost, they were still able to produce a stunning wine revealing a pretty floral nose backed up with red berry aromas.  It’s mid-weight palate is ripe and quite approachable now, but would do well hidden away for a year or two.

    Opened the 2016 a little too early. A lovely wine on the nose. Tannins a little tight. Something to slow down an enjoyable evening. Love the sensual earth tones and medium weight. Beautiful.
