SAINT-AMOUR, BEAUJOLAIS CRU The terroir of the Champs-Grillés, with a surface area of 3 hectares, is rare and precious since it represents only 1% of the AOC Saint Amour. It was created in 1964. Very floral on the nose. A well-balanced wine with a beautiful substance and complex aromas of red fruits.
Appearance Ruby colour with purple reflections, bright appearance. Nose Aromas of various red fruits as well as floral aromas such as violet. On the palate A pure and straight wine very well balanced in terms of both perfume and tannins. The schistose granite gives it a beautiful texture with silky tannins.
