From Saint-Amour, an aptly named, much loved Cru of Beaujolais, this is a true charmer. 2018 was a legendary vintage, so there's lots of generous bright fruit and it's from the Trophy winning cellar of Maison Loron. "Well worth seeking out" (WA).

Adored Saint Amour is the most northerly of Beaujolais's prized 10 crus. A little cooler than the other villages, its wines have lovely lightness of touch, bright fruit and pure drinkability. In the ripe 2018 vintage, there is extra weight. Domaine des Billards prides itself on its 60 year Gamay vines, which produce grapes with intensity and poise. Winemaker is Frédéric Maignet, a firm believer in a gentle hand in the cellar, to guide the grapes through vinification. It certainly does the trick. Wine Advocate described the charming 2018 as, "a terrific Saint-Amour—and great value", and the 2015 was an IWC Trophy winner. With its lovely ripe berry character, the wine is a classic with charcuterie, pâtés, quiche and chicken. Very versatile.

"A terrific Saint-Amour and great value, too, that’s well worth seeking out" William Kelley
