About the Beaujolais Cru region of Saint-Amour:
Bequeathing its name from Amor, a Roman Legionnaire who took refuge in the area after refusing to fight the Christians, and long since associated with love and romance, Saint-Amour, with its mixture of granite, schist and clay produces both soft, floral, fruit driven wines and more powerful complex wines that can be aged for up to 5 years.
About the Wine Producer:
Beaujolais is gaining around the world as the region produces accessible, easy-drinking wines in a variety of styles. Located in north of Beaujolais, Château de Belleverne is a 36 ha domaine which manages using environmentally friendly practices (HVE Certified since 2018). Its vines are at least 50 years old and includes prestige vineyard plots that are in four of the ten Beaujolais Crus, namely Juliénas, Chénas, Moulin-à-Vent and Saint-Amour, as well as in the northern realms of the Beaujolais Villages appellation.
Boutinot’s Samantha Bailey discovered the estate in 2014 during an impromptu tasting with the owner siblings, Didier, Alain & Sylvie Bataillard, whose family have owned the 240 year-old property since 1969. Sharing their pursuit of finesse and concentration in Beaujolais wines, and intrigued by their twist on traditional vinification techniques, such as cooling the grapes during carbonic maceration to achieve this, a close working relationship developed. Samantha now has crucial ‘first access’ to the cellar, going in before anyone else to taste each and every cuvée to create blends exclusively for Boutinot, as shown in this Château de Belleverne range which features a Beaujolais Villages and a brace of Cru wines from Chénas and Saint Amour.
