CHATEAU DES BACHELARDS
Saint Amour AOC
The name Saint Amour, imparts a romantic air to these wines. It can be difficult to find many options for this coveted Cru outside of France. This Saint Amour has refined aromatics with notes of red cherry skin, flowers of peony and rose, and a savory touch of leather and balsamic. The palate is supple with good length and tension striking balance between acidity, thin tannins, and pleasurable drinkability.
