Located on the south-east mid-slope of the Saint-Amour vineyard in the lieu-dit of “Les Billards”. Piedmont soil and old alluvial deposits; heavy clay with some areas over very deeply weathered granite
In the cellar, the vinification is semi-carbonic and lasts between 12 to 15 days. A weighted grill keeps the cap submerged in the fermenting juice, which gives a very gentle extraction of tannins. The wines are aged in cement tanks.
This bright Gamay from a single estate is full of juicy red fruits and light tannins. Deep and full bodied… almost tangy. Marvelous balance and a long, complex finish.
Some cellaring would let the tannins soften up and this would certainly be one to put down for a few years.\
