Pascal Berthier, wine maker: « For 25 years, I’ve tried to find the taste of the past, going back to my roots and to reduce my footprint. I like to pamper the lands that are the legacy of conscious people and because of that with every sip of my wine emerges pleasure and truth. »
First, Saint-Amour is the most northerly of the ten Beaujolais cru areas, located just to the south of the Maconnais appellations of Pouilly-Fuisse and Saint-Veran.
In general, Saint-Amour wines are among the lightest of the Beaujolais crus, often displaying spiced berry and stone-fruit characters with a marked minerality.
