The word Les Chatenays comes from the Latin "castenetum", meaning chestnut forest. Although common in the Morvan, chestnut trees are rare on the limestone plateau of Chasselas (border between the Mâconnais and Beaujolais regions)

The vines are planted on a steep slope, 400m above sea level with a gradient of 25-30% and south-west orientation. The plot is 1ha, the vines are on average 15 years old and the soil consists of sandy clay on the surface with a deep layer of calcareous clay underneath.

The grapes are harvested by hand. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in thermally controlled stainless steel vats around 18°, using indigenous wild yeasts. MLF takes place spontaneously and completely. The wine is aged for 6 months in stainless steel tanks on the lees (lie), without racking or using battonage, bottling takes place in the spring after harvest.

This results in a bright pale yellow wine, with characteristic aromas of white fruit (apple, pear), citrus and white flowers. The palate is balanced, elegant and has a refreshing finish.
