Saint-amour Wine

Local lore suggest that this region was named after a Roman soldier (St. Amateur) who converted to Christianity after escaping death and established a mission near the area. The wines from Saint-Amour are noted for their spicy flavors with aromas of peaches. The vin de garde wines require at least four year aging and can last up to twelve years.

  • Domaine des Billards Saint-Amour 2015

    Snoothrank:

    This Cru Beaujolais is a fine wine; the nose is of a young woman's perfume - not the kind a richer person can afford, but mixed with her 18-year old purity of scent. On the palette comes a deep, vinous, juicy red-lip smack of flavour with the memoire of fresh grapes (Gamay, of course) lying in deep bunches. Delicious and there is the lasting vi... Read More

  • What varietals do you think would match my fruit-driven palette well, such as Saint Amour, Morgon, Moulin-a-Vent and Brouilly?  My budget limit is $25.Not sure what that means.
