Description

In 2008, Paul-Henri Thillardon began making wine from 3ha of vineyards, with the conviction that Chénas has always been unjustifiably overshadowed by Moulin-à-Vent. He has slowly added new parcels to form the 12ha he works today. From the start, he has farmed organically, working some of the vineyards with a horseand using biodynamic treatments. In 2009, he met Fleurie winemakers and lynchpins of the Fleurie natural winemaking scene, Jean-Louis Dutraive and Yvon Métras, who took the young Paul-Henri under their wing. 

Supple, fine and elegant with real focus and purity. With notes of wild cherries and other red berry fruit, this is expressive, floral, fine and elegant. A great summer drop.
