Caves Bienvenu, Saint-Amour Beaujolais, 2020
Saint-Amour Beaujolais Cru
202o, 0,75L, 100% Gamay
On granitic soils, Gamay expresses wines that are age-worthy and medium-bodied. Forget the easy and cheap Beaujolais Nouveau: here we are on another dimension, with a medium-bodied wine, sporting a purple red colour, with a medium astringency and expressing notes of raspberries, peach, rose and violet, with a tendency to become spicier with the age. Service temperature: 15-16C. Ageing potential: +10 years. Glass: Burgundy red.
