The final Cru in Beaujolais lies to the north and mostly to the east of Juliénas. The romantically named Saint Amour lies on mostly clay soils that rise from the edge of the Saône river to meet the gentle hills of Saint Amour and Saint Vérand. These are plump, juicy wines with a touch of spice and earth accenting their fruity flavors.
