Domaine des Chenevières

The Estate

Domaine des Chenevières has been a family affair for 5 generations of winemakers in love with their land. Vincent and Nicolas Lenoir with their wives and children Sylvain, Aurélien and Benoit, work the vines with passion. From the pruning to the harvest to the vinification and the bottling, they work with the respect of tradition to recreate the enchantment of the land in order to awaken your taste buds for greatest happiness.

A wise balance between traditional winemaking methods and new oenological methods (pneumatic press, temperature control during the alcoholic fermentation) allows the Lenoir’s to preserve the typicity and the quality of the wines produced in the field. Quality is also obtained by controlling yields to obtain the richest grapes possible. Each plot is vinified tank by tank, which also allows for optimizing the assemblies during bottling. Concerned with the protection of the environment, the domain respects the principles of reasonable agriculture by the maintenance of the grounds and the minimization of the number of treatments used on the vines.
