DOMAINE DU CLOS DU FIEF / Michel Tete
- SAINT AMOUR “Les Capitans”
Grape: 100% Gamay.
Tasting notes: ‘The stunning red-fruit nose pulls you into this concentrated and very precise Saint-Amour that flows gracefully across the palate, in spite of the generous tannin structure that drives the long, silky finish. Drink or hold’ James Suckling
Floral and fruity, the aromas of strawberry, peach, violet and spicy cinnamon are common.
Saint-Amour is found in the far north of the vine-growing region, where the soil features intermingling granite and clay, schist and limestone. Designated as a Cru in 1946, the region borders the Mâconnais and the site ‘Les Capitans’ is a rare single vineyard that can adorn its name to the label.
