Saint Amour, Beaujolais

Domaine des Billards (Héritiers Loron)

Clos des Billards Saint-Amour Gamay 2019

American geography ignoramus that I am, little did I know that the Northernmost tip of the Rhone- Cote Rotie- is the kissing cousin of Beaujolais. St. Amour is more midpoint, but has that great granite terroir which makes this long standing Cru Bojo (& under 20$) a perennial fave. It’s that mineral tautness I love. — a month ago

Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2014

Vintage 2014 | Blind tasted. Só playful! With this wine I was fooled myself... thought it to be a Cru de Beaujolais, because it was expressive and frivolous. — 2 months ago

Saint Amour Gamay 2018

The Beaujolais wine we love to taste. Carbonic maceration that brings explosive and intoxicating fruity, coupled with pigeage in the Burgundian style, and partial ageing in barrels bringing delicate tertiary notes. The colour is bright red, typical of a Saint-Amour. The bouquet is ripe and floral red fruit, with beautiful herbaceous notes. The tannins are fine but well marked. The finish is stretched on freshness, strawberry and flowers. It's a lot of fun.

Le type de Beaujolais qu’on adore goûter. La macération carbonique apportant le fruité explosif et enivrant, couplé avec un pigeage à la bourguignonne et d’un élevage partiel en fût apportant de délicates notes tertiaires. La robe est rouge vif typique d’un Saint-Amour. Le bouquet est fruits rouges mûrs et floral, avec de belles notes herbacées. Les tanins sont fins mais bien marqués. La finale est tendue sur la fraîcheur, la fraise et les fleurs. Beaucoup de plaisir.
