The south-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 takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. The wine sees no oak.
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 Sidaurin family owns the Estate and has aligned with Les Vins Georges Duboeuf for many years.
This wine is a great match for rich foods such as grilled duck, lamb moussaka, many Indian dishes that feature lamb and a variety of hard cheeses.
