History

Following his artistic and entrepreneurial spirit, in 1984 Joseph Helfrich designed a bottle with a revolutionary shape. He named it Joséphine. It stood out from the crowd with its original curves, slanted neck and generous body. It represented a genuine challenge at the time as a special bottling chain needed to be built for it. The first brand of French wine was born and its name was JP Chenet.

 

To set itself even further apart from the far too traditional French market, JP Chenet focused its communication on the grape variety rather than the appellation. Initially, the brand offered two wines, a Pays d’Oc Cabernet Sauvignon and a Blanc de Blancs which was a blend of Colombard and white Ugni from the Gascony hillsides. A veritable pioneer in the south of France, JP Chenet developed partnerships with the cooperative wineries to ensure the durability and quality of the wines. Together, they defined the style of the wines well before the harvest to ensure consistency regardless of the vintage. JP Chenet wines are tracked, controlled and monitored from the vine itself, always providing the delicious fruity aspect that characterises it so well!

 

The wines won over the German market first before being exported to the Netherlands and Scandinavia. Still booming, the brand quickly became synonymous with pleasure and conviviality. Its range extended to bi-varietal wines in the early 1990s to meet growing demand. Cabernet-Syrah was born and was to remain the most prized of the range.

 

The success of our brand is intimately associated with its capacity for innovation. We were the frontrunners of French branded wines and thanks to the hard work of our teams, J.P Chenet is the best-selling French wine in the world. In the 160 countries where it has a presence, the brand conveys the image of a modern French wine adapted to the habits of the markets.

Vineyards

Le Pays d’Oc

Bordering the Mediterranean, the Pays d’Oc spans four departments: Pyrenees-Orientales, Aude, Hérault and Gard. Sun-drenched vineyards produce aromatic wines and a unique richness. It is in this region, the largest in Europe, which we identify our best Merlot, Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.


 

Gascogne

Located between the Atlantic Ocean and the Pyrenees, Gascony enjoy an ideal climate for aromatic grapes production. It gives birth to fresh and seducing wines of an extrem elegance. This is in the unique terroir that we identify our best white grape varieties : Sauvignon blanc, Colombard and Chardonnay.

Winemaking

Our two winemakers, Philippe Chabert and Vincent Euzet, work extensively in the vineyard to identify the sectors most likely to perfectly ripen the different grape varieties. We work very closely with the local wineries to identify the best grape varieties and the best terroirs. In the wine trade, the grape variety traditionally indicates the type of vine. It is characterised by the shape of its leaves and grape bunches. Similarly to fruit, the various varieties produce grapes of different style and taste. There are 350 grape varieties in the world today. JP Chenet is made from the most famous among them.
