  • Saint Amour is one of the 10 great wines of the Beaujolais Crus, but also the smallest appellation (only 5% of all the crus). The village of Saint-Amour-Bellevue is located in the Saône-et-Loire, at the northern edge of the Beaujolais (12km from Mâcon). This charming Beaujolais village, named for a Roman soldier 'Amor' who escaped death by converting to Christianity, celebrates Cupid at every turn, The perfect wine for St Valentine's Day!

    Our Saint Amour comes from the place known as "Côte de Besset" which borders the appellation Juliénas. The plot is one of the highest in altitude, facing east with steep slopes of non-calcareous stony deposits.
