Domaine Chenu Père et Filles - Burgundy
Organic - biodynamic - demeter - vegan - Low sulphite - delicious wine
Louis Chenu Père & Filles is a family winery in Savigny-les-Beaune, Burgundy. We have been working the vine and producing wine for five generations now. This wine is part of the family and is very dear to us. The first parcels of vineyard were bought by Louis Chenu in 1914 and are today worked by his great grandson Louis Chenu with the help of his wife and daughters. We are constantly aware of the importance of respecting the vineyard, the quality of the wine and providing a warm welcome for customers who visit our cellars. Juliette and Caroline have been working as a team for a number of years to strengthen and build on the quality of the wines.
Our vines are all situated in the Savigny-les-Beaune district of the Côte de Beaune. We mainly produce Savigny-les-Beaune Premiers Crus, “Aux Clous”, “Les Hauts-Jarrons”, “Les Lavières” or “Les Talmettes” wines, but also a rare white Savigny-les-Beaune Village wine.
Like all Burgundy reds, our Savigny reds come from the pinot noir grape. This grape variety was brought to Burgundy by the Cistercian monks and made compulsory in the 14th century. Like all great Burgundy whites, the white wines come from the chardonnay grape. The particularity of our vintage comes from the presence of old stocks of the pinot blanc variety (around 10%), which adds suppleness and balance to the chardonnay.
