Saint-Amour

2015

2015 was a sunny vintage. Harvest began August 31st and yields were low, around 35 hl/ha, giving a lot of concentration to the wine.

"...their third vintage at Pirolette. The wine is a bit over fourteen percent octane in 2015, but quite pure, well-balanced and sappy at the same time. The nose offers up scents of ripe and sappy black cherries, black raspberries, a touch of apricot, chocolate, violets and dark soil tones. On the palate the wine is deep, powerful and full, with a rock solid core, ripe, moderate tannins, good acids and impressive length and grip on the opulent and nascently complex finish. This carries its ripeness very well and clearly shows the step forward that each passing vintage currently brings at this domaine. 2020-2045."
