Barbet Saint-Amour Domaine des Billards France Burgundy Beaujolais Saint Amour Red 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Out of the blocks, it is quite black fruity in this vintage. The very deep and serious nose wafts from the glass in a classy mélange of black cherries, a hint of cassis, cherry skins, espresso, a very complex soil signature and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and suave on the attack, with perfect focus and balance, a great core of fruit, a fair bit of ripe tannin, tangy acids and outstanding length and grip on the still quite primary finish...94" JG 1/12

A light and easy-drinking Saint-Amour that is full of red fruit and savory, gamey notes. If you've never tried a wine from this northernmost Beaujolais Cru, now is the time.
