Château de Saint-Amour 2018

Overview

The 2018 Chateau Saint-Amour presents a brilliant garnet color, with delicate aromas of red and black fruits like cherry, and floral notes, reminiscent of roses. It is pleasantly rich and structured, with silky and unctuous tannins and a persistent finish.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The southwest-facing vineyards of the Estate include 49.4 acres, where most of the vineyards are more than 20 years old and trellised in the traditional Gobelet style. Harvest is conducted manually, in whole bunches. Semi-carbonic maceration and malolactic fermentation take place in temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats. The wine sees no oak.

Interesting Fact
Saint-Amour is the northernmost Beaujolais Cru, and the smallest. The “romance” of wine is especially pronounced in this region by virtue of its name. The Siraudin family owns the Estate.

Serving Hints

This wine is a great match for rich foods, such as filet mignon, beef bourguignon poultry with mushrooms, and aged cheeses
