The N°1 French wine brand in the world!

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.

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.

  • J.P. Chenet Colombard-Sauvignon

    Snoothrank:

    I do not know what kind of a wine aficionado would give this little white such a poor rating. I found it to be delightful and refreshing if cold. Good with stuffed pork chops. To say that it was poured down the drain is a total waste of money. If you did not like it why not keep it for cooking at least. Or maybe you do not know how to cook. Read More

  • J.P. Chenet Reserve Pinot Noir

    Snoothrank:

    I try not to judge a book by its cover or rather a vino by its ~$11 asymmetrical bottle. The only reason I picked this wine up was to reaffirm my love of Pinot Noir with Seared Salmon. Steamed broccoli and Arugula salad w/ raspberry vinaigrette eagerly await, on the plate, the seared pecan-crusted fish.The shifting colors of ruby red and purple... Read More
