Domaine du Clos du Fief Saint Amour 2014

Domaine du Clos du Fief Saint Amour 750ML 2014   
Sku: 315024

Domaine du Clos du Fief is run by our friend Michel Tête, with his son Sylvain working alongside. This is a rare 4th generation Cru estate in Juliénas and Julie, based at the far Northwest sector of Beaujolais. The history of these great villages dates back more than 2,000 years and trace their names to Julius Caesar. Vines were grown on the high altitude hillsides of Juliénas and Jullié (a granite rich Beaujolais-Villages Cru that mimics its more famous neighbor) in the Gallo-Roman period. Michel took over this history-rich land after studying in Beaune, where he learned many techniques that he now uses on his own wines to great acclaim. Michel harkens his wines back to the classics: low yields, meticulously farmed vineyards, and classic winemaking resulting in serious and mouthwatering examples of terroir driven reds.

Saint-Amour is found in the far north of the vine-growing region, where the soil features intermingling granite and clay, schist and limestone. Designated as aCru in 1946, the region borders the Mâconnais and the site 'Les Capitans' is a rare single vineyard that can adorn its name to the label.

WINE NOTES

The 2014 Saint Amour Les Capitans underwent a 17-day maceration and was raised invat. It has a fresh, marine influenced nose that takes a while to unfold. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy, ripe red and black fruit. There is a pleasant saline note toward the finish, which feels silky and refined.
