Domaine Cheveau / Saint Amour Beaujolais / Les Champs Grilles / 750mL
Notes from the importer:
The “Champs Grillés” lieu-dit is situated in the heart of the Saint Amour appellation on soil composed of sand and schist. The average age of the vines are 70 years (as of 2011) with some as old as 90 years. The grapes are hand-harvested, subject to multiple “tries” (both in the field and on a sorting table); then, the grapes are destemmed, a brief cold maceration is done to extract color and aroma, followed by a 12-day cuvaison with regular pigeage and remontage. The wine is aged in stainless steel and bottled within a year of the harvest. Approximately 250 cases per annum are available for the US market.
