VILLAGES AND NAMED AREA
Saint-Amour “Aux Thèpes“
his charmingly named Cru is the most northern of the Beaujolais Crus, with most of the vines being in the Saône-et-Loire department of France rather than the Rhône where the other nine are to be found.
The appellation area is south-east facing and covers 310 hectares.
The maximum yield is 52hl per hectare with the maximum alcoholic degree at 13°.
The harvest takes place in mid-September. All the grapes are picked manually as the Beaujolais semi carbonic winemaking process requires that the bunches be whole.
Pressing is after 8 days of vatting, followed by malo-lactic fermentation and maturing in vats.
