Saint-Amour is one of the most exciting and diverse Beaujolais Cru, with pink granite in Fleurie and blue volcanic soil in Côte du Py. Saint-Amour is made by Gregory Barbet, who took over this plot. It is the smallest, and alongside, Julianas is the most northerly Cru and named after an early Christian missionary and Roman Soldier. The nose is indulgent with Gariguette strawberry, cherry and blueberry suffused with fragrances of violet, liquorice and white pepper. Full-bodied and juicy in the mouth. The wine is made with spontaneous fermentation using the Chapeau method, then nine months on lees in a combination of egg amphorae and stainless steel tanks.

Domaine de la Pirolette

In 2013, Grégory Barbet was looking for a house in Beaujolais. Grégory's father helped with the search and called him one day, saying that he had found a beautiful home in Saint-Amour. There was a catch: the house included a winery that was originally founded in the 1600s with 15 hectares of vines. Although a bit intimidated he dove right in with his wife Virgine and now creates remarkable wine that reveals all the terroir has to offer. 2013 was the first harvest since the estate was taken over. This is a story of people who love wine, hence the estate's nickname: "the passionate bunch".
