The long slow death of (Saint) Amour(?)

Saint Amour, today…


Will it really require the return of a few Mercedes 4×4 to resurrect one of the greatest wines of Beaujolais?

Fine writing from Aaron Ayscough…

    You should contact Domaine de Pirolet in St. Amour. A new estate producing very fine wines, nominated last year as one of the best of the Jeunes Vignerons of Burgundy.

    Hmm, I’m wondering about Ayscough’s “exclusive” list of good Saint-Amour producers as I’m now drinking a St-Amour from Michel Guignier, a “natural” wine producer in good standing that Ayscough’s list excludes. Ideology and lack of knowledge are not a good combination, as we can see both in wine and politics.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
