From one of the ten Beaujolais Crus which have been identified for their unique quality and character, this Saint Amour is deserved of being singled out.
If your last recollection of Beaujolais was the light and pale plonk from the 80s, you’ll be amazed to see the quality and concentration of red fruits that this region can produce.
This Saint Amour is packed with delicious red berry fruits and has enough character and structure to stand up to just about all foods.

- Domaine Cheysson was founded in the 17th century by the monks of Cluny Abbey. The monks settled on the current site of the Estate, they cleared the hills to plant vines and build the cellar that we still use today.
- These vines located on extremely steep hillsides, facing due south give small yields but with wines of a beautiful aromatic complexity.
For fermentation, it is the yeasts from our region that ferment the wine. These bring authentic notes with very beautiful aromas and a nice complexity on the palate.The wine was then aged in stainless steel tanks, protected from oxygen, for more than 6 months to allow it to flourish.
It is now ready to be drunk now and will keep for three to four more years.

- After years of mass production of wine style focused on Beaujolais Nouveau, many vintners try to change the region. This new generation has traveled around France, Europe and overseas to improve their skills. It starts to be closer to the origin of the ‘appellations’ : Reducing the yield and working in an organic way. Picking very ripe grapes with a full potential of fine aromas and soft tannins is very important. Using a gentle winemaking process to produce juicy wines.
- The fine tannins and elegant fruit enables the wine to match very well with Western food and Asian food (Japanese, Chinese and Vietnamese); food with fine spice even with vegetables are better with our wine. I made some trials many times for wine dinners in Asia, food and MADONE wine matching is just gorgeous The classical food match: our wine is perfect for food like pork, poultry and goat cheese.
- This wine is tailored for ageing up to 10 years, in the coming years the complexity and spiciness will increase in the way of the best Burgundy wines, after 10 years the great potential of this fine wine is at his peak, we are today drinking 2009 that’s so fine, so silky, gorgeous!
- But the silky tannins and the fruity characters allow the wine to be drunk easy when young, this is another tasting but this is mine, I like young wine with a lot of energy!
