92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Bursting with aromas of strawberries, orange rind and rose petals, the 2019 Saint-Amour Les Champs-Grillés is medium-bodied, bright and lively, with fine-boned structuring tannins and a crunchy core of fruit. This is a pretty, immensely drinkable Saint-Amour from Chermette."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Pierre-Marie's Saint-Amour is drawn from a tiny parcel of 50-year-old vines from the Champs-Grilles climat (which itself covers just a total of three hectares). Saint-Amour's soils include areas of granite and clay-limestone, (and sometimes a mixture of the two). The latter is said to produce lighter, more delicate wines, while Chermette's vines are rooted in the classic decomposed granite. Along with the old vines, low yields and high, southeast-facing aspect, this begets a surprisingly dark and intense wine combining the dark fruits and structure.
