Saint-Amour, “Villa Violettes”
This cuvée is an assemblage of five parcels (average 60 years old) that Domaine Cheveau recently acquired from their uncle. The grapes are hand-harvested and sorted before being destemmed. After a cold maceration of three to four days and a two-week cuviason, the wine spends eight months in stainless steel before bottling. The “Villa Violettes” is comparable to the “Champs Grillés” with deep color and structure, explosive fresh fruit, and firm tannins; yet it does present a bit fresher and more youthful on the palate. Approximately 125 cases per annum are available for the US market.
