2017 was a great vintage for Pirolette. They had no hail, and although they harvested in late August, the same as 2015, the yields were much higher than 2015 and the resulting wines were not as concentrated. The 2017 Saint Amour is bounding with juicy raspberry fruit. It's full of energy with great minerality and silky tannins. Saint Amour has the most diverse geology of all of the Cru Beaujolais. Pirolette is distinct because the vineyards are near the top of the hill, where you have very little top soil and very good drainage. The vines average 65 years-old. Total production averages 35,000 bottles.
