In the heart of Saint-Amour, little village with two Michelins Stars restaurants, Domaine de la Pirolette is perched at the top of a hill, facing the church. Full of character, the estate which dates back to 1600 inherited the name of a pretty white flower: the Pirole. It is one of the largest estates in Saint Amour, very well located on the appellation’s best terroirs.
A rich diversity of the terroirs
The vines are grouped around the property, enjoying the very varied soils, particularly pebbly soils with sandstone and blue stones, clay and deep altered pink granite, facing south and south-east. The most emblematic plots are vinified separately, respecting the different areas: “Le Carjot”, “La Poulette”, “La Pirolette”….
Indulgent nose with strawberry, cherry and blueberry suffused with fragrances of violet, liquorice and white pepper. Full-bodied and juicy in the mouth. The ideal red wine to celebrate a weeding as all these magic moments that makes life beautiful.
