Domaine du Chenoy
The development of a professional wine-growing and –making domain in the Namur region in southern Belgium owes a great deal to the tenacity and the passion of Philippe Grafé, who has made the Domaine du Chenoy one of the jewels of the PDO Côtes de Sambre et Meuse. The Chenoy vineyard covers 10 hectares, planted with different interspecific grape varieties: Regent, Pinotin, Rondo, Cabertin and Muscat Bleu for red wine (seven hectares); Bronner, Merzling, Helios, Johanniter, Solaris for white (three hectares).
Muscat Bleu owes its name to the eponymous grape variety, a table grape of which 1,000 vines were planted at Chenoy in 2004.
Having been pressed and stemmed, the grapes are put in the tank and undergo full alcoholic fermentation, followed by the addition of vinic alcohol and concentrated must.
Deep garnet red with glints of black.
Immersed in a vat of stewed small fruits (blackcurrant, cherries), with a hint of chocolate.
Lovely balance around fine tannins.
Definitely with rich chocolate cake!
