Pierre Hourlier Wines

Saint Amour Wine

The furthest north of the crus in the Beaujolais region, and the second smallest covering 310 hectares of land, local legend suggests that it's name came from St. Amateur, a Roman Soldier who converted to Christianity after escaping death and founded a monastery there. A Saint Amour is refined, retaining the fruitiness of the Gamay grape, with spicy flavours and aromas of goosebury and peach, with a very intense colour. It is widely considered to be the official wine of Valentines Day.
