Saint-Amour is the most northerly Beaujolais cru, which can present both highly structured wines, and accessible, easy drinking wines soft and ripe red fruit, unfined and unfiltered with no sulphites . The expression from Cotes de la Molière expresses both in equal proportion, a truly balanced Beaujolais. It has the potential to open up and grow in the bottle, whilst being more than ready to be drunk now.
Cotes de la Molière is one of Cepage’s exclusive domaines, situated in the crooks of Beaujolais. Owned by Isabelle and Bruno Perraud (Maison Perraud), the Domain represents many of Beaujolais cru and some southern Burgundian wonders. Isabelle and Bruno work with many grape varietals and are prone to experimenting, though the core wines are wonderful expressions of the regions, from Morgon and Saint-Amour to Bourgogne blancs and St Veran.
We were attracted to the Maison because of the minimal interventionist approach, sustainable ethos and the passion behind the wine, with the owners taking responsibility at all parts of the winemaking process. In addition, we love Isabelle’s commitment to inclusivity and gender equality on social media. Truly interesting and brilliant value wines that we are proud to represent.
