Product description

Let yourself be seduced by the aromas of this Chénas Chassignol, with an emphasis on aromas of red and black fruit, floral notes and herbs. On the palate the wine shows volume, with good depth. The tannins are fine and give elegance to the whole. Spicier, still with this delicious fruitiness, the aromatic intensity is powerful. A welcome minerality at the end of the palette, perfect for a successful balance.

A typical cuvée from the Thillardon estate. Located just behind the estate and acquired in 2012, the "Chassignol" is a plot, steep, difficult to work, only plowed with a horse. It rests on a quartz-covered granite bottom. This particularity, doubled by the age of the vines, led Paul Henri to make a selection parcellaire.

Paul-Henri Thillardon (32) is a master winemaker at a very young age. Chénas is not far from Moulin-a-Vent and therefore the wines can display many of the same properties. Paul-Henri brings you this concentration, but knows where the balance point is for elegance. They call it 'mature wine'. In 2008, at the age of 22, Paul Henri made the important decision to dedicate his work to the cru of Chénas, instead of in the neighboring and more famous Moulin-a-Vent, which occupies much of Chénas's fame . Then, in 2010, he planted an acre of vines on a beautiful south-east-facing plot in Chiroubles, and another plot of Viognier grapes, a variety that is not permitted under Beaujolais rules. In early 2011, the domain covered 5.7 hectares (13.7 acres) with its Chénas vines averaging 40 years old.

As with many of the new generation, Thillardon is committed to organic produce and has chosen to use horses instead of tractors in the Pontet-Canet vineyard. The vineyard is biodynamically grown - Vines are treated only with herbs and are plowed by horses. The wines are made with native yeasts and do not see sulfur until bottling. Paul Henri makes an average of about 40,000 bottles a year. In the past, all picked grapes were stripped of their stems and fermentation took place at approximately 20 degrees Celsius. Since 2015, however, the complete bunches have entered the fermentation tanks and the temperature is kept low, about 9 degrees. This makes the fermentation very slow, but the fruit is beautifully preserved in the wine. The Chénas of Thillardon is therefore not a hefty wine, but rather juicy, refined and elegant.
