‘Le Cru des Amoureux’ Saint Amour, Château de Belleverne

£15.00

A structured Beaujolais from the region’s most romantic Cru

Bequeathing its name from Amor, a Roman Legionnaire who took refuge in the area after refusing to fight the Christians, and long since associated with love and romance, Saint-Amour, produces both soft, floral, fruit driven wines and more powerful complex wines that can be aged for up to 5 years. For the Bataillard family, owners of Château de Belleverne, the acquisition of Saint-Amour vineyards sealed their presence in each of the four most northerly Beaujolais Cru; they also own plots in Chénas, Moulin-à-Vent, and Juliénas. Their south-east facing Saint-Amour plots are made up of schist and shale and slope gently down from statue of La Madone in the village itself.

A wine that offers delicious wild strawberry fruit aromas, with berry flavours backed by a touch of savoury liquorice and notes of white pepper that provide complexity and a silky lasting finish.
