Domaine de la Pirolette BEAUJOLAIS CRU “Saint-Amour” 2016
APPELLATION: AOP BEUAJOLAIS CRU “Saint-Amour”
In the heart of the little village of Saint-amour with its two Michelin-starred restaurants, Domaine de la Pirolette is perched at the top of the hill opposite the church. The 15 hectares of vines are grouped around the property and the most iconic parcels are vinified separately to respect the different lieux-dits: “Le Carjot”, “La Poulette” and “La Pirolette”. 2013 was the first harvest since the estate was taken over by Virginie and Gregory Barbet, along with their co-owners. It’s a story about wine lovers, as demonstrated by the estate’s nickname: “The Passionate Bunch”. Everyone enjoys each other’s company during the harvest, a highlight of the year.

OWNER Nicolas & Dominique Romy
The grapes are vinified in whole clusters or destemmed in cement vats. The ancestral “chapeau grillé” technique used requires a special wooden grill to keep the “hat” submerged. This gentle extraction helps provide structure whilst retaining the elegance of the terroir.
