Chacenay is located in the southeastern part of the Aube departement, at the small stream Le Paquis which empties into Arce in the neighbouring commune Bertignolles. Chacenay can therefore counted as part of the Arce valley, la Vallée de l’Arce.
The Chacenay commune covers 780 hectares and has 48 inhabitants (as of 2013).
The vineyards in Chacenay are partly located in the northern part of the commune, directly at the village, and partly in the southern part of the commune, in a narrow strip of land located between Noé-les-Mallets and Loches-sur-Ource. (The vineyards in te southern part of the commune are located in the Ource valley rather than in the Arce valley.) Pinot Noir dominates greatly.
