Description

The award winning St Amour is an astonishing '09 cru Beaujolais. Heavenly scents of peonies and irises, ripe texture with hidden depths of character, smooth rich and satisfying. A polished gem.

Three generations of the Millard family have been making wine at Domaine de La Porte du Paradis, whose vineyards include 9 hectares in St Amour. Vines grow on sileceous clay on gently slopes.

In the Winery

Whole grapes, sourced from a single domaine, are placed in the vat and the grapes are effectively crushed using maceration carbonique (carbonic maceration). Didier also uses a thermo-vinification technique to encourage fermentation. The wine is bottled the May after harvest.

'Structured and lively,' said Mikael Hannequin. 'Good rustic, cherry texture,' said Sarah Jane Evans MW. 'Classic wine by the glass." Sommelier Wine Awards 2011. Judges Comments
