Saint-Amour is one of the 10 Beaujolais crus. Gamay is wonderfully expressed on the granite arena (sand) resulting from the millennial erosion of the Massif Central to offer us a wine to drink on all occasions with friends… or as a couple.
Colour:Sustained ranging from ruby red to garnet.
Nose:Lots of finesse combining notes of ripe fruit and spicy notes.
Taste:Clean and supported with melted and racy tannins. It is a wine of pleasure, to drink "on the fruit", in its youth.
Food-wine pairings:Perfect with grilled red meats or in sauce, as well as with refined cheeses.
Ageing: 2 to 5 years
Serve between: 14 and 16°C
