About

92

The 2018 Regnie was bottled a mere two weeks before I tasted it, but it nonetheless bursts from the glass with expressive aromas of ripe berries, cherries, licorice & warm spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny & supple, with succulent acids, melting tannins & a flavorful finish. This is a terrific cru Beaujolais that's well worth seeking out.

92 Antonio Galloni - Vinous

Deep ruby. Fresh dark berries, cherry pie, candied violet and a suggestion of smoky minerals on the assertively perfumed nose. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering juicy blueberry, cherry compote, spicecake and floral pastille flavors that slowly tighten up with air. Finishes sappy, smooth and very long, showing persistent florality and fine-grained tannins that rise up slowly.
