Bursting with aromas of strawberries, orange rind and rose petals, the 2019 Saint-Amour Les Champs-Grillés is medium-bodied, bright and lively, with fine-boned structuring tannins and a crunchy core of fruit. This is a pretty, immensely drinkable Saint-Amour from Chermette. 92 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
The newest star in the Chermette sky, Pierre-Marie’s Saint-Amour is drawn from a tiny parcel of 50-year-old vines. Saint-Amour’s soils include areas of granite and clay-limestone. Along with the old vines, low yields and high, southeast-facing aspect, this produces a surprisingly dark and intense wine. It combines the dark fruits and structure of the Moulin-à-Vent with the bodyweight of the Fleurie. Give it time in the glass.
