Dark, bright-rimmed magenta. Bright and energetic on the perfumed nose, displaying intense red and blue fruit, exotic spice and lavender qualities and a hint of smoky minerality. Sappy and precise on the palate, offering penetrating black raspberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors; hints of licorice and succulent herbs build with air. Fine-grained tannins add grip a very long, penetrating finish that echoes the mineral note and leaves a hint of smoky bacon behind.
"This Beaujolais’ cru, often underestimated, does not have to be ashamed of its neighbor Morgon. Our Regnié comes from distinct and complementary types of land, one composed of deep granitic sand bringing greediness, conviviality and the other of stony soils of ancient alluvium bringing spicy notes and structure to the wine.
A little less macerated on skins than the two other crus, it will be appreciated from the bottling by its friendliness. On the nose, the vine peach dominates, followed by a smooth mouth with velvet tannins." - Winery
