Mommessin Grandes Mises Saint-Amour 2016

Produced in limited quantities, Mommessin’s “Les Grandes Mises” range offers Beaujolais wines vinified and aged in Burgundy. The northernmost of the region’s crus, Saint-Amour retains all the fruit in the Gamay variety. Aged 11 months on fine lees, it unveils a supple, mouth-watering palate bustling around flavours of sour candy as well as floral and subtly spicy notes.

🌍 Saint-Amour, Beaujolais, France

🍇 Gamay 100% (made with 50% whole clusters)

👀 Bright violet

👃 Fresh and energetic on the nose, displaying sappy red fruit and floral pastille qualities and a hint of musky herbs.

👄 Sappy and precise, picking up hints of licorice and allspice as the wine opens up. Fine-grained tannins build slowly on a long, incisive finish that emphatically echoes the mineral note.
