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.

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.
We consider Antoine somewhat of a Regnie specialist and this wine shows why! Plush and pure, Antoine's blend of old vine parcels is a go-to year-in and year-out with our team. Gravity flow to tanks, Indigenous yeast fermentations at low temperatures, to preserve fresh fruit flavors and a delicate tannic structure. Whole cluster fermenteation for 8-15 days, horizontal pressing, manual racking for elevage. Aged 8 months on the lees in 90% neutral burgundy barrels and 10% epoxy tanks. Minimal sulfur, bottled with no fining or filtration. - Distributor
