Background

For many years, Maison Jean Loron have had an exceptional reputation thanks to their winemaking savoir-faire. For the white wines - this includes plot selection, precise control of the pressing process and maturation in our ageing warehouses either à la Bourguignonne in oak casks with bâtonnage for the Pouilly Fuissé or in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats for the wines from Mâcon and Saint Véran.

For the red wines - in 1998 we created the Cellier de la Vauxonne, a modern ageing warehouse in Beaujolais. Long term contracts with more than 50 winegrowers, agronomical assistance and a meticulous grape selection have made this venture a great success both qualitatively and commercially.


Tasting Notes

This Saint-Amour has a soft, round attack with a persistent, generous structure and an indulgent finish. Located on the south-east mid-slope of the Saint-Amour vineyard in the lieu-dit of “Les Billards”. Piedmont soil and old alluvial deposits; heavy clay with some areas over very deeply weathered granite.
