'Chénédolé' in gardens and commerce is probably mislabeled, as the references do not mention any stripes or strong veining, and the colour was a crimson more into vermilion and cochenille-red. Despite its alleged French origin, this rose seems to have been distributed mainly in England and USA. Continental sources are pretty much silent on it.
'Chénédolé' in gardens and commerce is most probably 'Triomphe d'Angers' by Guérin - see.
