Saint-Amour (Barbet)

2018

The traditional vinification lasts between 12 to 15 days; they use a weighted grill to keep the “crust” submerged in the fermenting juices leads to a more effective extraction of tannins.

"The 2018 Saint-Amour from Domaine des Billards opens in the glass with a pretty bouquet of ripe cherries, raspberries, dried flowers and licorice. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, broad and fleshy, with a layered and enveloping core of fruit, ripe acids and melting tannins, the vintage making for a decidedly gourmand and approachable rendition of this perennially excellent cuvée. It’s a terrific Saint-Amour—and great value, too—that’s well worth seeking out."
