Chénas has historically been an overlooked appellation, but Raphael Saint Cyr intends to help change that. Les Blémonts vineyard is located in the center of Chénas. Raphael purchased this vineyard at the same time as his friend Paul-Henri Thillardon bought the neighboring parcel, so together they have a nearly 5 hectare block of organically farmed vines. Since 2019, all the cru Beaujolais from Domaine Saint-Cyr have been vinified using cold carbonic fermentation, native yeast, and minimal (if any) sulfur to produce incredibly drinkable, soft, fruity and delicious red wines.
