Saint Amour, Beaujolais

Château des Jacques

Roche Noire Morgon Gamay 2015

The third bottle, still as delicious, of this Beaujolais with southern accents. If he was blind he could easily call Saint-Joseph, for example. The crunchiness of the typical gamay fruit is associated here with a rather dense general structure with a material of black fruit and roasted or toasted notes. 2015 is awesome 👍 — 5 days ago

Les Champs Grilles Saint-Amour Gamay 2016

Haven’t had much (any?) Saint Amour before so not sure how it typically compares to other Cru Beaujolais. But this one at least is redolent with violets, tangy raspberry, cherries, blackberries, dried herbs and earth, with maybe a slight charred quality on the finish although that may just be the power of suggestion from the name of the lieu dit. Satin smooth, Burgundian texture — 3 months ago

Saint-Amour Gamay 2018

Wow! Big heavy full body for a beaujolais. Excellent showing right now but no rush. Probably last 5 to 8 years longer easily. Big lush dark fruit with mushroom, and leather. Very good and shows great promise for the 2018 vintage! — a month ago

Domaine Des Chers Moulin-A-Vent Vieilles Vignes 2016

This is all the things you want from Cru Beaujolais! Smoked pepper salami, dark plum, violets, blackcherry and lifted carbonics. Juicy, with racy minerality and firm acidity. There’s just enough structure back by boisenberry and plum fruit. Balanced. Decent length. Excellent QPR. — 3 months ago
