Chateau de Belleverne Saint-Amour

A romantically-named Beaujolais Cru from Rannochscott Wines

Nothing says "I love you" like a bunch of drooping carnations smelling of petrol forecourt.

However, if you really want to impress on Valentine's day, a bottle of romantically-named wine with some appropriate food, might do the trick.

Saint-Amour is the northernmost of the Beaujolais Crus, one of ten sub-regions producing wines with a more specific, regional character. At their best, its wines are bold, with aromas of kirsch and spice, and will improve with up to four or five years of ageing.

Chateau de Belleverne Saint-Amour, Le Cru de Amoureux 2014 (Rannochscott Wines £9.49) juicy black cherry and kirsch fruit, florality and spice; elegant with fine tannins and peppery spice.

Good.

A versatile food wine, match with herby chicken, tuna or a simple plate of salamis, yellow cheeses, bread and oil.
