2018 Saint-Amour, Domaine de Fa - Beaujolais, France
This product is currently sold out.
In 2013, the Graillot family acquired mature vines in the cru of Saint Amour.
This Gamay has a violet-tinged colour, is chock-full of red berries and spice on the palate and will age for a good 5 years if you have sufficient patience!
Benefits from at least half an hour open or decanted, it has similar graceful perfume as a top-quality Northern Rhône Syrah, which only lifts the intense red fruit body.
100% Gamay, using Beaujolais process of semi-carbonic maceration using whole bunches (no destemming). Maturation in large oak foudres. Wines are bottled unfiltered so can throw a light sediment.
Food pairing : Roast poultry, Veal escalopes, Pork, Charcuterie…
