Saint-Amour, “Les Champs Grillés”
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 75 years 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.
