Equivalent Bottle Price £23.99
"Domaine Michel Chevau Saint Amour "Les Champs Grilles" Cru de Beaujolais comes to us from the heart of the Saint Amour appellation on soil composed of sand and schist. The average age of the vines are 70 years (as of 2011) with some as old as 90 years. The grapes are hand-harvested, subject to multiple 'tries' (both in the field and on a sorting table); then, the grapes are destemmed, a brief cold maceration is done to extract colour and aroma, followed by a 12-day cuvaison with regular pigeage and remontage. The wine is aged in stainless steel and bottled within a year of the harvest."
