About:  The 2019 Saint-Amour is a clean and fruit-forward expression of the Gamay grape. Acidity is balanced out by the fruity character of the wine, and with a smooth texture it makes for a wonderfully easy-drinking wine - perfect for Valentine's Day.   

From old vines in the lieu-dit of “La Grande Charrière”, a vineyard at the base of the slope, made up of old alluvial decomposed granite, schist and clay. These soils yield wines with both high toned aromatic intensity and a firm core. Inspired by Jules Chauvet’s fermentation notes from 1972, the hand-picked clusters were placed in a vat for three weeks with no crushing, pumping or plunging, the grapes undergoing what Chauvet called a fermentation aromatique. Pressed after 21 days, the wine finished fermentation in tank before nine months in 500L barrels. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
