The Wine
100% Gamay which was planted in 1976 and grown on granite and crushed granite slopes
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 a Cru in 1946, the region borders the Mconnais and the site Les Capitans is a rare single vineyard that can adorn its name to the label
Semi-carbonic vinification in cement, Aged in cement
Floral and fruity, the aromas of strawberry, peach, violet and spicy cinnamon are common.

The Estate
Domaine du Clos du Fief is run by the father-son team of Michel and Sylvain Tte. This is a rare 4th generation Cru estate in Julinas 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 Julinas and Julli (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 and Sylvain harken their wines back to the classics: low yields, meticulously farmed vineyards, and classic winemaking resulting in serious and mouthwatering examples of terroir driven reds.
