Domaine Chardigny Saint-Amour A la Folie – notes of fresh strawberries, raspberries and cherries dominate the palate of this elegant cru Beaujolais. The finesse, silky tannins and its important guarding potential make it an elegant cuvée.
“Here the very stony ground is slightly more silty than its neighbour, the Clos du Chapter. The large area of this vineyard (4.5 hectares) allows us to try several types of macerations. The ageing of this wine lasts 12 months in barrels, half-muids and stainless steel vats. The finesse, silky tannins and its important guarding potential make it an elegant cuvée. ” – Domaine Chardigny
These young brothers, Pierre-Maxime, Jean-Baptiste and Jean-Michel, run this family domaine which they are in the process of transforming. Jean-Baptiste is also vineyard manager for the Joseph Leflaive estate in the maconnais. They also sell grapes to Jean-Louis Dutraive and Jean-François Ganevat in the Jura. Minimum use of sulphur, organic grapes and the result is a rich, fruit-driven, delicious Saint Amour.
The CHARDIGNY estate is located on the commune of Leynes at the crossroads of Mâconnais and Beaujolais. The vineyards are operated by the three Brothers Chardigny Pierre-Maxime, Jean-Baptiste and Victor-Emmanuel. It is therefore a family estate comprising vines that were passed on to them by their parents Catherine and Jean-Michel.
