Régnié is the youngest of the Beaujolais crus! In fact, it wasn’t until 1988 that this appellation was officially recognised. But the newcomer in the family has got a lot to offer. Its favourable geographical location, in between its two brothers, Brouilly and Morgon, produces wines of a unique fruitiness.

The colour in the glass is a deep ruby red. The nose bursts forwards with aromas of wild strawberries, cherries and redcurrants. The palate has well balanced acidity, gentle tannins and a hint of minerality. The flavours are of red summer fruits with an enticing spicy note. The finish is very long.

This makes a wonderful picnic wine, or for something more formal, pair with seafood paella.

Gamay

Gamay is a thin, delicate purple-black skinned grape which is cylindrical and compact, surrounded by flat, fairly even-edged leaves.

Although granite soils seem to be its soil of choice, the variety is good at adapting. Half of the 30,000 hectares of Gamay planted worldwide are in the Beaujolais region of France, where it covers 98% of the areas that produce Beaujolais wine.

Beaujolais, France

The hilly Beaujolais vineyards stretch out from north to south over 55km, bordered to the west by the Massif Central, and to the east by the Saone river.

Beaujolais vineyards are emblematic in the French national landscape, but are still teeming with secrets to be unearthed. The region has a constent sense of welcome and sharing. Sculpted over centuries it is personified by its 12 AOCs.

Dominique Piron, Clos Du Vieux Bourg

Dominique declared his first vintage in 1971 and, in 1987, established the highly successful Maison Piron. While he sold Maison Piron in 2020, he still owns the historic family vineyards in Morgon. Dominique and his wife purchased the old church of Saint-Pierre de Corcelles to house the Clos du Vieux Bourg winery. They have added further vineyards in Morgon, Chénas and Régnié.
