The 2018 Saint-Amour from Domaine des Billards opens in the glass with a pretty bouquet of ripe cherries, raspberries, dried flowers and licorice. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, broad and fleshy, with a layered and enveloping core of fruit, ripe acids and melting tannins, the vintage making for a decidedly gourmand and approachable rendition of this perennially excellent cuvée. It’s a terrific Saint-Amour and great value, too, that’s well worth seeking out.

The 2018 vintage is a great success for the Barbet family's five-hectare Domaine des Billard. Cultivated soils, traditional vilification with whole bunches and a submerged cap, followed by élevage in foudre are the rudiments of the approach. This is well worth seeking out.

Brilliant violet. Ripe and expansive on the fragrant nose, displaying an array of dark berry and floral aromas sharpened by peppery spice and mineral flourishes. Densely packed yet lively, offering sappy black raspberry, bitter cherry and violet pastille flavors that are lifted by a core of juicy acidity. Finishes very long and smoky, showing excellent clarity and a late jolt of candied licorice.
